Havertz to speak with Leverkusen as teammate says he 'dreams of playing in England'

Kai Havertz reportedly wants a meeting with Bayer Leverkusen to discuss his future with Chelsea reportedly having the biggest interest in the player.

It has been a great season for the 21-year-old as an individual, but not collectively.

Havertz has bagged 17 goals and eight assists in all competitions this season, 12 goals and six assists in the Bundesliga, but it was not enough as Leverkusen missed out on Champions League spot after finishing fifth.

They also just lost their only chance of silverware this season after Bayern Munich claimed the DFB Pokal trophy, defeating Leverkusen 4-2 in the final.

With Leverkusen having no Champions League football next season and several top clubs reportedly after him, Havertz may want to take the next step of his career.

According to a report from SportBild’s head of football Christian Falk, Havertz is looking to discuss his future with Leverkusen after the cup final defeat.

He also insinuated that Chelsea could be in pole position should Havertz decide to leave this summer.

Bayern Munich will not bid this transfer window, Real Madrid are hesitating to spend, while Chelsea remain interested; he said.

Havertz’s Leverkusen teammate Wendell also previously opened up about the Germany international’s dream of playing in the Premier League.

Wendell told Yellow and Green Football: “If he goes to the Premier League, he will learn a lot.

“I think Kai dreams of playing there. He has that desire.

“And I think if he decides to play in England, he will be a success.”
