Havertz could be what Liverpool wanted when they pursued Fekir

Kai Havertz is a high-quality young player who is a prodigious user of the ball in the final third. While he prefers to play as a number 10 behind the frontline, the 20-year-old is capable of operating on the right wing and also as one of the advanced central midfielders in a 4-3-3 formation.

Since the German season started just last week, let’s consider his numbers from the previous season for discussion. The Germany international scored 20 goals and supplied 7 assists in 42 appearances in all competitions.
