Liverpool are yet to make a major signing this summer, with only young Sepp van den Berg arriving, but the Daily Express claims that they are weighing up a move for Bayer Leverkusen sensation Kai Havertz.
Havertz, 20, has been linked with Barcelona and Bayern Munich and recently told Bild that he will be thinking of making a step up in the near future. "I am honest, at some point the next step must come for me," he said. "But I'm not going to worry about when exactly that will happen ...
"I really don't know yet whether FC Bayern is the next and right step for me. I also don't know whether foreign countries would not be more suitable for me. I really don't think too much about it at the moment. I have that self-confidence, yes [that I could play for Bayern]. But the same applies to other clubs as well."
Liverpool have been looking for a new attacking midfielder, with Nabil Fekir and Philippe Coutinho on the radar, but Havertz (No. 5 on our top 30 players under 21) would be a coup if they can persuade him to move now.
