- Dimitar Berbatov claims Kai Havertz needs to stay focused on his game now that a number of top teams are interested in his services.
- The German has enough quality and if he keeps it up those clubs won't go away.
- The former United striker would love to see the 20-year-old in the Premier League at some point but not right now.
- Still, the Bulgarian is not surprised that teams like Liverpool reportedly want the Bayer prodigy.
On Monday, Bayer Leverkusen beat Werder Bremen 4-1 in the first game after the Bundesliga restart. Kai Havertz, who has been linked with a possible move to Liverpool, scored two beautiful headers in the first half of the game.
"Havertz needs to get used to the sounds that are being made about him following his two goals on Monday night because teams are going to come after him," the Bulgarian told Betfair.
"There’s a lot of talk that Liverpool, Chelsea and other teams are interested in him. So now he needs to be careful, not let that go to his head and stay focused on his game.
"He has enough quality and if he continues the way he is going, teams will still be there - they won’t go away. All eyes are on the Bundesliga at the moment and when you score goals and play good football it is no surprise that teams like Liverpool want you.
"I would like to see Havertz in the Premier League at some point, but not right now. I think it is a bit too early for him. I want to see him play more games, score more goals and get more confidence and maturity."
Apart from Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea are all reportedly keeping an eye on Havertz. Real Madrid and Barcelona also remain eager to sign the gem while Bayern Munich are naturally confident that they would be able to convince him to stay in the Bundesliga.
Havertz first made a statement last term. The 20-year-old scored 20 goals and provided 7 assists in 42 games across all competitions.
Kai has been equally impressive this term, scoring 12 goals and collecting 8 assists in 35 matches so far.
The wonderboy has already won 7 Germany caps and scored one goal for the Bundesteam.
Naturally a midfielder, Havertz is an extremely versatile player. The lad can operate anywhere in the midfield, all across the front three as a No.10, as a false 9 and even as a striker - as he did in the game against Werder.
