Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City have all held talks to sign Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz, according to reports in Germany.

The 20-year-old is considered as one of the best young talents in the Bundesliga and has attracted interest from several clubs across Europe.

Havertz has already made 98 appearances in the Bundesliga, scoring 26 goals and registering 20 assists, while he also has seven senior caps for Germany’s national side.

According to Bild, Havertz will leave Leverkusen at the end of the season and the midfielder is currently negotiating with seven clubs.

Four teams in the Premier League – Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City – have all made approaches along with Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Real Madrid.

But due to the high level of interest, Leverkusen have set a €130 million (£111m) asking price for the player.

Speaking to Spanish newspaper Marca earlier this month, Havertz insisted that he was capable of making the transition from the Bundesliga to the Premier League or La Liga.

‘I think I’ve picked up enough international experience at Leverkusen,’ he said.

‘I know the rhythm of these international matches and I’m confident that I can go abroad at any moment and play at clubs outside of Germany.

‘For the moment, I want to have a good season. Afterwards, we’ll see.’
