The agent of Kai Havertz has contacted officials from seven clubs – including Liverpool and Manchester United – about the possibility of signing the Bayer Leverkusen midfielder, according to a report.
The 20-year-old has been in scintillating form since the start of last season, following up his 20 goals and seven assists in the previous campaign with three goals and one assist to date so far this term.
Such statistics have led to the seven-cap Germany international being heavily linked with a move to both Liverpool and United over the past few months, with the player himself revealing in a previous interview that he is confident of moving abroad “at any moment”.
One earlier report claimed that Havertz’s preference over a move would be to Real Madrid and, according to Bild, Los Blancos are one of five other clubs the player’s agent has contacted about their interest in his client.
It is claimed that the agent has also spoken to representatives from Chelsea, Manchester City, Bayern Munich and Barcelona as some of Europe’s top clubs continue to monitor the midfielder’s progress.
The newspaper continues by saying that a move across Europe could happen in January, although the Daily Mirror says that such a deal is unlikely, given the possibility of his form dwindling and him being removed from Germany head coach Joachim Low’s plans for Euro 2020 next summer.
What’s more, Havertz is said to be inspired by working with a coach who can develop him as a player rather than by the financial benefits of a move, with the midfielder reportedly preparing to make a decision on his future in the next few weeks.
Havertz, whose current contract with Leverkusen runs out in the summer of 2022, has scored 31 goals and laid on 23 others in 121 appearances for the club so far.
