However former Bayer Leverkusen and Chelsea midfielder, Michael Ballack has advised Havertz to extend his stay at the club and shouldn’t be in a hurry to depart.

“Players with his quality are in demand everywhere but I think he is in good hands in Leverkusen,” Ballack told Bild.

“The conditions are perfect for top young players to further their development.”

“Leverkusen play attractive football, the training opportunities are very good. Leverkusen also offers a cautious environment.

“As a player [at Leverkusen] you can sometimes make mistakes without being the focus of criticism – you should appreciate that.
