When will this end? The Reds have once again been in the papers regarding German football’s most talented home grown youth. According to SportBild (via SportWitness), Bayer Leverkusen will charge Liverpool €130m for Kai Havertz should Jürgen Klopp seek to bring him to Anfield.
Liverpool and Kai Havertz is a saga that will drag on until the end of time, or until he finally leaves Leverkusen – whichever comes first.
The German midfielder has been one of the most coveted youngsters in Europe since his star turn 2018/19 Bundesliga campaign.
Last season saw the youngster net 17 goals in 33 starts for Bayer, picking up three assists along the way.
This has been a quieter season for the lad so far, he’s bagged four goals and three assists in 16 starts.
Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voller sung the youngsters praises, with Bild quoting him as saying:
“Kai has an extraordinary gift. He is good with his left foot, good with his right foot, has a good head, an outstanding technique, and he is fast.”
The report goes on to say that Voller will insist on a fee of €130m for the 20-year-old.
What RTK has to say
If we want Havertz we will get him.
The Reds are in their strongest financial position in years and Nike will expect a marquee signing to boost shirt sales as we kick off our partnership with the Oregon athletic giants.
There is also the consideration that Jürgen Klopp is well revered in his home country, Havertz would relish the chance to play under the Liverpool boss.
Fingers crossed we manage to pull this one off, Havertz could be the goalscoring midfielder of his generation – if we don’t get him now he could be out of reach for the remainder of his career.
