Bayer Leverkusen manager Peter Bosz is prepared to lose young talent Kai Havertz next year, admitting in an interview to German publication SportBild that the player will decide his future.
Should Liverpool sign James Maddison?
“Kai is only 20 and still has room for improvement. I can help him there. But it is like this, at the end the player himself must feel when he is ready for the next step. Nobody can decide that for him.”
As reported by the print edition of SportBild [via Sport Witness] last month, Liverpool are among a plethora of European clubs to have shown an interest in the 20-year-old playmaker, who has been valued at more than €100m (£88.76m) by his club. German media outlet Sport 1 had also linked the Reds with a possible move for Havertz in August.
The Bayer Leverkusen youngster has scored three times in 10 matches so far this season and has already played 115 times for their first team, as well as having seven full Germany caps. [via TransferMarkt]
These Liverpool fans on Twitter are hoping that Havertz will move to Anfield next year following Bosz’s admission about the player’s future, with one even asking for Mohamed Salah to be sacrificed if it would help the German’s prospects of joining the Reds:
Kai Havertz in Klopp’s team will be lit. Bang on. There is no one better out there. #LFC

Havertz is the last piece in LFC starting 11,
Havertz is the man that can link the midfield up with the Fab 3 and break down those tight defences and make them cute passes to the Fab 3!
Robbo Fabinho AA

Havertz not only has all the skills necessary to thrive in multiple positions other than as a 10, but he already does
Additionally, he’s only 19 and could change quite easily
