Reds have been heavily linked with Bayer Leverkusen attacker Kai Havertz, while the two biggest names in German football are also interesting. It’s still not clear where he will decide to go, but it will be interesting to see what he decides is best for his own future.
It’s an opinion that could make a lot of sense, as Dortmund have helped to develop attacking talents like Mario Gotze, Ousmane Dembele and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang in recent years, while Erling Haaland looks to be going the same way.
We’re starting to see that footballers aren’t just taking money and recent success into account when they select their next club – looking at how they treat their players are huge too.
While it might be tempting to join the team with the biggest reputation, if they have no history of developing talent and showing patience with their younger footballers then it may not be the best move for them.
One player who could face that situation soon is Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz, who’s having another impressive season and looks ready to step up to the next level.
