Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz “a great talent” – Bayern Munich boss

Bayern Munich boss Niko Kovac believes Bayer Leverkusen’s teenager midfielder Kai Havertz is a “future top player.”

Barcelona and Real Madrid have both been linked to the highly-rated 19-year-old, who is valued at a reported €80m by German media outlet Sport Bild.

“He's an absolute talent, a great player,” Kovac said, in quotes cited by ESPN FC.

“Sooner or later, he will certainly leave Leverkusen. There's no doubt we are discussing a future top player.”

Now a full Germany international, the rising star has netted 13 goals across all competitions this season with his varying skill set earning him rave reviews within the Bundesliga.

Bayer currently lie in seventh spot in the German top flight and have hit form in recent months following a sluggish start to the campaign.
