Liverpool are reportedly closing in on a deal to sign highly-rated Bayer Leverkusen starlet Kai Havertz.
The 18-year-old, who has supposedly already visited the club’s Melwood training ground, only signed a new five-year deal with Leverkusen in July but the Reds are said to have stepped up their interest in the player.
Indeed, the report claims that Jurgen Klopp, Steven Gerrard and Philippe Coutinho all greeted the player on his trip to Merseyside in October.
Havertz has four goals and three assists in only five starts for the Bundesliga outfit this season but the Reds are expected to face competition to get their man.
Top clubs in Germany are also said to be keen on the player but Klopp is hoping to use his own links to his homeland to get the transfer over the line.
