Bayer Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voller has confirmed there is an agreement in place which could see Chelsea target Kai Havertz leave this summer.
We have been heavily tipped to splash their money in the transfer window and try to acquire the services of Havertz, who has been banging in the goals over in the Bundesliga over the past few seasons.
His performances for Leverkusen has got many fans excited, with many hoping that he will be signed by the club, but they are set for a summer battle with Real Madrid, as the Spaniards are also reportedly interested in signing the German.
With 36 goals and 16 assists in the Bundesliga in the last two seasons, it isn’t difficult to see why Europe’s top clubs want Havertz, and the the chance to link up with international team-mates Timo Werner and Antonio Rudiger could appeal to him.
Leverkusen are hoping to keep hold of him for at least another year regardless of any interest, but sporting director Rudi Voller has confirmed there is an agreement in place which could see Havertz leave this summer.
“There is nothing specific, nothing to report. As of now, he is our player,” Voller told BILD
“We have our ideas, we know what he can do. I personally hope that he stays one more year. We have an agreement: if it works, he can go this summer.”
There has been so much speculation regarding the future of Havertz that it is easy to forget that he is still very young and does not need to move just yet, so that is why we will not be too disappointed if we miss out, especially as we have a top-class attack already at the club.
