“He is special,” Hargreaves told Goal. “He is the next one.

“I think all the best German players stay in the Bundesliga for a while and then they go to the Premier League or Barcelona or Real Madrid.

“Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, Toni Kroos and Mesut Ozil all travelled and did well.

“These Bundesliga talents are in high demand as they are well schooled and good professionals. He is the next one.

“All eyes are on Haaland and Sancho but Kai Havertz is the one from a German perspective.

“He is special and he is like a hybrid of Michael Ballack and Mesut Ozil. That says a lot in terms of his goals and elegance.

“He is a super player and I think many fans will be watching him from England’s top six and thinking that a guy like him is good enough to go to their teams.”
