Bayer Leverkusen boss Peter Bosz is resigned to losing Kai Havertz in the summer, but claims he will cost “more than €100 million”.

The 20-year-old has scored 10 goals this season and has consistently been linked with a move to the Premier League.

Liverpool and Manchester United are thought to be the frontrunners, and Bosz admits it will be difficult for Leverkusen to hang on to their prized asset.

“Kai is 20 years old, but this is already his fourth season in the Bundesliga,’ Bosz told Dutch outlet Algemeen Dagblad.

“That says a lot. Everyone in Germany sees him as a child prodigy. He is from Aachen, has been here since he was eight. Nice boy to work with. Intelligent. He also plays the piano.

“We sold his buddy, Julian Brandt, to Borussia Dortmund last summer. Havertz suddenly became even more of an eye-catcher.

“A lot came to him before the winter break. We lost the derby at Koln and three days later also at home to Hertha Berlin.

“He can’t be held on to next summer. That will be a transfer of €100 million. What am I saying? More than 100 million!”

Havertz has seven caps for Germany, after making his debut in 2018.
