Bayer Leverkusen are expecting Liverpool to make an offer for Kai Havertz in the summer transfer window.

The German has emerged as one of the hottest prospects in the Bundesliga in recent years, with a series of impressive performance earning him attention all around Europe.

Some of the interest is coming from the Premier League, and yesterday we covered a report from SportBild that both Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City had all held concrete talks with his agent.

Liverpool and Manchester United were thought to be the most ‘keen’ on his signature and that a bid summer move could be on the cards.

However, it seems Manchester United are now out of the race, with Christian Falk claiming that Liverpool are now his only option in England.

He claimed on Twitter that three clubs want Havertz, one from Spain, one from German and one from England.

When asked who the English club was, he replied that Bayer Leverkusen were ‘expecting’ an offer from Liverpool.

That contradicts what his newspaper said yesterday when they made it explicitly clear that both Liverpool and Manchester United were interested.

Perhaps there’s some confusion in the office, or, now that United have finally got Bruno Fernandes, they’re no longer in the hunt for a number ten.

Either way, it seems their interest in Havertz has disappeared, and if he is to end up in the Premier League, it will be Anfield he is calling home.
