This summer we can expect a lot of business to be done, the Reds have loadsa money and will be looking to placate their new kit suppliers with a marquee signing or two. Liverpool could be handed a boost in their pursuit of Kai Havertz if Euro 2020 doesn’t go ahead.
Liverpool have been linked with a move for Havertz for a while now.
The German midfielder has been banging them in for Bayer Leverkusen and can only get better.
In his breakthrough season the youngster bagged an impressive 17 goals from midfield, he recently became the youngest player to reach 30 goals in their Bundesliga career.
Many believe that Jürgen Klopp will move for the 20-year-old over the summer, the player’s boss has already admitted that he expects to lose him and it has been reported by El Desmarque that Real Madrid have conceded to Liverpool in the race for Kai Havertz.
Michael Edwards may have a further boost in his pursuit of the German. Euro 2020 in the summer was bound to complicate any pursuit of Havertz.
It is difficult to negotiate with a player whilst he is competing at a major tournament. A strong performance at a major international tournament can also increase competition and therefore the price tag.
This would mean that it would be in the club’s interest to try and secure a deal before the tournament started, putting pressure on negotiations.
However, with the global health emergency showing no signs of relenting, the chances of the tournament going ahead are slipping away. If the Euros are suspended then Liverpool need not worry about Kai Havertz commanding a larger fee and they will have more time to tie up a deal.
Every cloud has a silver lining, if Liverpool end up without the league then we can find positives somewhere, somehow.
