Liverpool scouts were present at Germany U19’s clash against Belarus last night, with one of their targets, Leverkusen youngster Kai Havertz starring for Die Mannschaft with four goals and an assist. The attacking midfielder turned 18 two months ago, but is already rated as one of the hottest talents in the Bundesliga
Havertz made 24 league appearances for Leverkusen’s senior team last season and scored four goals, including this last minute equaliser in a thrilling game at home against Wolfsburg.
The presence of Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool might also prove to be a factor in favour of Havertz should he want to move to the Premier League.
Leverkusen are currently 11th in the Bundesliga table with 8 points from seven games.
