Reds scout German youngster


Liverpool have sent scouts to watch Bayer Leverkusen teenager Kai Havertz in action for the German under-19 side.

The eighteen year old was in action for his country in the match against Belarus in a UEFA qualifier for the U19 Euro Championship on Wednesday.

And he did not disappoint as he notched four goals, and an assist, in a 5-1 victory for his nation. Two of his goals were from the penalty spot.

The teen talent made his debut for Leverkusen a year ago to become club’s youngest Bundesliga player at the age of just seventeen years and 126 days old.

Havertz has gone on to make twenty-four appearances for Leverkusen in die Bundesliga, which have indluded four goals and six assists and also appeared in the Champions League last season.

So far this season, he has appeared four times in the league and once in the German Cup.

The youngster put pen to paper on a new contract during the Summer that ties him to Leverkusen until the Summer of 2022, but that is unlikely to put off potential suitors.

And it would appear that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is one of them as he considers a bid for his compatriot.
