Liverpool close to signing Leverkusen star dubbed 'the next Mesut Ozil'

Liverpool close to signing Leverkusen star dubbed 'the next Mesut Ozil'”

Liverpool are reportedly closing in on a deal to sign highly-rated Bayer Leverkusen starlet Kai Havertz.

The Reds are believed to be very keen to sign the 18-year-old Germany Under-19 global, who broke into the Leverkusen side last season and 24 Bundesliga appearances.

The Liverpool Echo suggest that Liverpool have been long term admirers of Havertz and were scouting him at October's U19 Euro Championship.

It was reported that Leverkusen granted Havertz, dubbed "the next Ozil" permission to visit Liverpool as they have him tied down to a long-term deal and as such, the Reds would have to pay a hefty price in order to sign him.

Able to play in attacking midfield or on the right wing, the young German playmaker is being hotly tipped as the "next Mesut Ozil" and could be aiming for a spot on the flight to Russian Federation if he keeps on improving at his current alarming rate.

Havertz has four goals and three assists in only five starts for the Bundesliga outfit this season but the Reds are expected to face competition to get their man.
