Kai Havertz is a player not many coaches would pass up the opportunity to add to their squads, according to Hansi Flick.

An outstanding run of form, with seven goals in his last six appearances, has seen the stock of Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz rise up significantly since the resumption of Bundesliga.

One of the promising talents in world football, Havertz has been turning heads from all of Europe with his exploits this season.

Manchester United, Liverpool, Real Madrid, and FC Barcelona are some of the big names linked with his signing. A move to Bayern Munich, however, is reportedly being preferred by the talented midfielder in the hopes of staying in his homeland.

Speaking in the pre-match press conference ahead of their Saturday’s clash against Leverkusen, Bayern head coach Hansi Flick added fuel to speculations by heaping praise on the 20-year-old.

“I think very few coaches wouldn’t want to have Kai Havertz in their team,” Flick told [via Goal].

“I’ve known him since the U-17s [Germany national team]. He has developed enormously well at Leverkusen. He moves very well between the lines and has a strong instinct to score goals at a young age.”
