Kai Havertz hasn’t created as much hoopla around Liverpool country as Leipzig’s Timo Werner but, as far as potential midfield additions to Jürgen Klopp’s squad go, the Bayer Leverkusen midfielder is thought to be near the top of the list.

The Westphalian club have benefited greatly from Havertz’s since the young player arrived onto the scene. The 20-year-old academy graduate racked up 20 goals last term and has a total of 10 goals and 8 assists so far this season for his boyhood club and all the big teams in Europe have been noticing.

Liverpool are said to have an interest in bringing Havertz to Merseyside this summer but on Friday reports out of Germany suggested that the player’s preferred destination is Bayern Munich and that the Bundesliga giant’s manager Hans-Dieter Flick would be all too happy to make the move official.

Havertz has a contract at Leverkusen that runs until 2022 but the German club might just be ready to grab the cash that their budding star’s transfer would command. Bayern have a strong history of getting their man but it’s possible that the new era of success at Liverpool under Klopp could make all the difference this time. Or, we’re just mongering.
