A number of top European clubs have been linked with Bayer Leverkusen’s attacking midfielder Kai Havertz, with Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid all believed to be interested in a 20-year-old midfielder.
The Germany international, capped seven times by his country, has scored 15 goals and made eight assists across 38 games in all competitions so far in the 2019/20 campaign, and he’s one of the most sought after players in the world at the moment.
Meanwhile, Sky Sports’ reporter Oliver Yew, has revealed that the hype around the 20-year-old is in fact very real, as he states that the young midfielder is worth all the hype and attention that he’s getting.
“The hype surrounding Kai Havertz continues to build, and rightly so. Before the suspension of football, he was in fine form, scoring five goals and producing five assists in his last eight appearances for Leverkusen, showing himself to be one of the hottest young forwards in Europe.
“Any danger of a loss of momentum during the enforced break due to the coronavirus pandemic have been dispelled since the resumption of the Bundesliga season, with Havertz picking up exactly where he left off… scoring goals.
“Havertz has scored five goals in four appearances and his winner against Freiburg on May 29 saw him become the first Bundesliga player to reach 35 goals before turning 21. That stat alone shows that the hype around Havertz is real.”
