Liverpool in bidding war for €85m-rated Bundesliga playmaker

The Merseyside giants have been tipped to prioritise the transfer of Bayer Leverkusen playmaker Kai Havertz over RB Leipzig centre-forward Timo Werner.

A report from Liverpool.com links Liverpool with Germany international, who has also been linked recently with the likes of Chelsea and Man United for possibly as much as £89m.

Kai has shone in the Bundesliga in recent times, looking particularly fantastic in recent matches as the German top-flight returned amid the covid19 pandemic.

The 20-year-old playmaker is undoubtedly one of the most exciting young footballers in the game and looks like he could be a fine fit for the Reds.

As explained by Liverpool.com, the German playmaker also looks like he could be the best fit for Jurgen Klopp’s system. Timo is more of an out-and-out centre-forward and might lack the all-round ability to play the Roberto Firmino role at Liverpool.

Kai, by contrast, is a similar all-rounder to Firmino and could fill a variety of other attacking midfield roles in Liverpool’s squad.

The teenager would likely be more expensive than the £50m-rated Timo, but in the long run he might end up being the better value-for-money investment.
