Bayer 04 Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voller has responded to future of the club's talented player Kai Havertz amid interest from Premier League clubs.

Havertz has been on the transfer headline throughout last week with rumours claiming Chelsea and Manchester United are interested in acquiring the service of the German player.

The 20-year-old attacking midfielder has been a key figure in Bayer 04 Leverkusen team since making his debut in 2016 scoring 35 goals in 114 appearances. This season Havertz has already gotten 11 goals and five assists to his name in the Bundesliga.

This week Chelsea entered the race of Havertz transfer and was thought to be preparing £75m bid for the young star. But Leverkusen asking price is understood to be £89m. Chelsea is also said to be interested in the signing of Leceister City left-back Ben Colwell.

Bayer 04 Leverkusen sporting director has insisted they are not giving up hope in keeping Havertz this summer saying they will try their best to convince him to stay despite interest from other clubs.

“We haven’t given up hope that he’ll stay with us,” Voller told ARD (via Daily Star).

“We try to give him every possibility that he can call up his qualities. He did an outstanding job in the second half of the season.”

Though it is unclear if Havertz will remain at the club next season as there are other interests from top European clubs seeking his service.

According to report Real Madrid is believed to be preparing €80m bid for the young talented player but will loan him back at Leverkusen.
