Chelsea are interested in Bayer Leverkusen starlet Kai Havertz and are preparing a summer move for the 20 year old German international.
Havertz has also being linked with Liverpool, Barcelona, Manchester United and Arsenal.
According to former Liverpool star Steve McManaman, Liverpool will secretly sign the 20 year old midfielder as they did with the likes of Fabinho and Alisson.
“We’ll have to wait and see; he’s a young player with plenty to improve on, who might be the type of player that Liverpool are looking at rather than a fully-fledged superstar,” McManaman told HorseRacing.net when quizzed about Havertz.
“Liverpool do a lot of their transfer business discreetly, and a lot of the other players were bought when we didn’t know it was happening, such as the likes of Alisson Becker and Fabinho, while Virgil van Dijk was very much the exception.
“They’re very low key when it comes to signing players they want in the summer, that’s why I take transfer rumours at the moment with a pinch of salt – and if Liverpool want to do business then they’re not going to tell anyone else about it.
“They’ll try and get it done before anybody else knows.”
