- The talented playmaker has lit Bundesliga up this season and attracted interest from across Europe, as per multiple reports.
- Owen Hargreaves describes the midfielder as a blend of Michael Ballack and Mesut Ozil.
- He believes Havertz is a special talent at 21.
- The Englishman supposes that Havertz could end up signing for Real Madrid or Barcelona.
Former Bayern Munich player and current BT Sport pundit has had high praise for Bayer Leverkusen's attacking midfielder Kai Havertz. Hargreaves is sure the German is far enough in his development to represent a top club already.
"He is special," Hargreaves told Goal. "He is the next one. I think all the best German players stay in the Bundesliga for a while and then they go to the Premier League or Barcelona or Real Madrid."
"All eyes are on Haaland and Sancho, but Kai Havertz is the one from a German perspective. He is special and he is like a hybrid of Michael Ballack and Mesut Ozil. That says a lot in terms of his goals and elegance."
Interestingly, Havertz once praised both Ozil and Toni Kroos for being Germany's best players ever:
"He is a super player and I think many fans will be watching him from England's top six and thinking that a guy like him is good enough to go to their teams. He could play at Liverpool, Man United or Man City.
"I think anyone watching him this weekend [against Borussia Monchengladbach] will say 'sign him up'. I would love to see Havertz go to Bayern but I think anyone would want him in their team."
There's no denying Havertz has been mightily impressive in the last two seasons in the Bundesliga. He currently has 13 goals contributions in 23 games, bagging a brace in the first game after the restart. The midfielder also had a hand in 21 goals last season, in 34 games.
According to the latest reports, Zinedine Zidane is obsessed with the idea of signing the 21-year-old. The club have even contacted the player's entourage several times, it is said.
