Reports suggest Bayern Munich doubt that Liverpool will pay Bayer Leverkusen’s asking price for Kai Havertz.

The German youngster has been linked with a move to Anfield since before Christmas as talks continue to hot up

According to this week’s edition of SportBild, it is claimed that no discussions have currently taken place for the 20-year-old and a price tag has been mentioned of over €100m (£91.8m) to lure Havertz’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidžić into an agreement.

The report also adds that the Bavarian club doubts that Liverpool are willing to pay the asking price for the Germany international. That all depends if Jurgen Klopp is willing to put his money where his mouth is.

Barcelona have also expressed their interest in the past and reports suggested that Havertz wanted a move to the Catalan giants.

Would you like to see Kai Havertz at Liverpool?

No

No

Because of the price tag along, Liverpool should steer clear of Havertz, despite being labelled with the title of “wonderkid”.

There was a phase during the current campaign where he did not score for Leverkusen for three months but did suffer a torn muscle fibre during that timeframe in his defence.

Havertz typically plays in the No. 10 role but can also be utilised on the right and in a deeper midfield role. If he came in, this would mean that Mohamed Salah’s position would be in jeopardy, or would it?

The Egyptian has 16 goals to his name during the current campaign, averaged 3.8 shots per game and has five man-of-the-match awards to his name.

With six goals and five assists in 22 appearances, Havertz has some catching up to do to reach the world-class standards that have been created by our No. 11.

Spending over £90m on a player that is not guaranteed first-team football would be incredibly naive.
