Liverpool sudden favourites to prise Kai Havertz away from Bayer Leverkusen

Liverpool are favourites to prise Kai Havertz away from Bayer Leverkusen.

Mundo Deportivo says Liverpool are ready to splash a club record £107million on Havertz.

Germany international Havertz is one of Europe's most sought after talents having becoming a regular during the past four seasons - and was named in the Bundesliga Team of the Year last season.

The Reds have placed themselves at the front of the queue - ahead of the likes of Manchester United, Barcelona and Bayern Munich - for a summer transfer by making contact with Leverkusen representatives already.

But for the Liverpool to lure him to Anfield, they will have to shell out in excess of £100m - which would overhaul the £75m they spent on Virgil van Dijk.

Jurgen Klopp will consider Havertz a potential Adam Lallana replacement, with the England ace out of contract at the end of the season.
