Kai Havertz: Wonderkid being targeted by Liverpool, Arsenal and Man City bags brace on Bundesliga return thumbnail

Kai Havertz was in fantastic form before coronavirus halted football in Germany and across the world. The Germany international, 20, had five goals and five assists in his last eight appearances for his club, Bayer Leverkusen. Getty Images – Getty Havertz has carried on his excellent form on his return to action As we all know, the Bundesliga returned last weekend but spare a thought for the likes of Havertz, who was on a serious roll before the unprecedented stoppage. But it was going to take more than a global health crisis to stop the midfielder in his tracks as he certainly picked up from where he’d left off. Leverkusen played their first match since the German top flight restarted with a trip to strugglers Werder Bremen on Tuesday night. And the star of the show was Havertz of course, who bagged a brace in the first-half of the clash. He gave Leverkusen the lead on 28 minutes, rising brilliantly to get on the end of Moussa Diaby’s cross from the right. Havertz took a knock for his troubles when scoring the goal but was able to carry on.

But Havertz gave his side the lead once again just five minutes after scoring his first goal. It was another header as Havertz nodded home an inswinging free-kick from the right – the goal made possible largely thanks to some questionable marking by the Werder Bremen players. Nevertheless, this should not detract from Havertz’s excellent form and it will only increase the interest in him from some of Europe’s top clubs. He’s been likened to German football icon Michael Ballack and has been linked with the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal this summer. It’s understood that any club wanting to purchase Havertz will have to pay in excess of €100million. Leverkusen added two more goals in the second half, Mitchell Weiser and Kerem Demirbay getting on the scoresheet as they ran out 4-1 winners. The result puts Leverkusen just a point off fourth-placed RB Leipzig, who could only manage a draw at home to Freiburg on Saturday.,
