Bayer Leverkusen winger Kai Havertz has said he is open to the idea of playing abroad but is determined to join a team which has a good chance of winning trophies.
The 20-year-old has been in superb form in the Bundesliga this season, scoring 11 goals and creating five assists for his side, and he is now one of the most highly-sought after young talents in Europe.
The likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea have been linked with a big-money move for the player, and they will be encouraged by Havertz's words in an interview with Marca in which he opened the door to the prospect of playing for a team outside Germany.
"I think I've picked up enough international experience at Leverkusen," the German international said. "I know the rhythm of these international matches and I'm confident that I can go abroad at any moment and play at clubs outside of Germany.
"For the moment, I want to have a good season. Afterwards, we'll see."
Havertz, who has also been linked with Bayern Munich, outlined that the priority for him is to win silverware, adding: "The team is always the priority, success is collective.
"Then, the individual [trophies] come when you play well. I want to win the biggest trophies during in my career: Champions League, World Cup or Euros. I don't think much about the individual [trophies].

“They (Bayern) are probably the biggest club in Germany and there are many players that were very successful at a young age that went there.
“Therefore, I get linked with Bayern, but we'll see what happens. There are players that want to stay close to their family and others say, 'I want to live in another country'."
It remains to be seen which of the English sides make the first move in an attempt to sign Havertz, who is valued at a staggering £90m by his team.
