Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz has been linked with Chelsea for some months now, but it isn’t only the Blues who are interested in the 20-year-old. Every top club in the Premier League as well as Bayern Munich have been linked with a move for the attacking midfielder.

Bayer Leverkusen assistant coach Marcel Daum has likened Kai Havertz to Zinedine Zidane and explains why everyone seems to be after the young player.

“Everyone is asking about Kai Havertz. If you see him play it tells you everything” the Leverkusen assistant told talkSPORT.

“For me, he has the elegance of Zidane. If you see his movement, he’s very elegant, he’s always calm, he has great passing ability.

“What a lot of people don’t see, because we watch him every day, is that he’s pretty fast. That’s a big bonus.

“He’s a great player; he’s scoring goals, he’s great in the air and he’s pretty fast.

“It’s up to him how far he can go. I can’t say he will be the best German player ever, but he has the talent and there are no limits. He’s displaying signs of Zidane.”

Marcel Daum went on to admit that the young midfielder might be sold by the club but he will not be sold for a cheap fee.

“The situation with coronavirus is so strange and so complicated that it’s still open that he will leave us,” he added.

“I don’t know what will happen, but at Bayer he has the right place to develop his strengths and improve. The only thing I know is that Bayer won’t sell him for a cheap fee.”
