This summer may end up being jam packed with football or completely devoid of it. Whatever happens, the transfer window will be open – the medicals could prove tricky though. Liverpool have been given a boost in the pursuit of one of their reported top targets, Bayer Leverkusen manager Peter Bosz has admitted that Kai Havertz will leave the club in the summer.

The Reds have been tracking the German midfielder for a while now.

Rumours of Jürgen Klopp’s interest first arose after the Leverkusen man’s incredible breakthrough season in the German Bundesliga.

During the 2018/19 campaign Kai Havertz netted 17 goals and 3 assists in 33 appearances, this campaign has seen him bag six goals and five assists.

With his departure from Leverkusen having been inevitable for some time, Peter Bosz has resigned himself to losing Kai Havertz, the manager told Goal:

“We can’t hold onto him next summer. It will be a transfer of over €100M (£90M). In this business, it’s about developing talents and selling them on. With at least €100M, we’ll try to strengthen ourselves in three or four positions.”

What RTK has to say

 

Liverpool signing Kai Havertz would be a masterstroke.

The Reds have been relatively devoid of goals from midfield since the sale of Philippe Coutinho.

Bringing in Havertz would see Jürgen Klopp bagging one of the next decade’s top goal scoring midfielders.

At just 20-years-old he has a long time to get even better and working with our German gaffer would be the best way to do that.

We know that Klopp improves players, if he gets to work with the already impressive Kai Havertz then there’s no telling what form we could see from the youngster in a few seasons time.
