Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz star has been linked with some of Europe's biggest clubs, including Bayern München.

Speaking to Bild, the 20-year-old says he believes he would be capable of joining the German champions, but he isn't sure if he wants to do so at this point.

"Yes, I would have the confidence [to do so]. But the same goes for other clubs as well," Havertz said and added:

"Right now, I really don't know whether FC Bayern is the right step for me. I also don't know which foreign countries would be most suitable for me. I don't really think too much about it at the moment."

Leverkusen have ruled out that Havertz could leave the club this summer, and the midfielder prefers to focus on the tasks ahead with 'Die Werkself' for now.

"The next step must come sometime. But at the moment, I don't think much about when that should be. What counts now is Bayer Leverkusen. We still have a lot to do," he underlined.

Havertz, who's under contract with Leverkusen until 2022, scored 20 goals and made seven assists in 42 appearances last season.
