Manchester United are leading the race for Bayer Leverkusen wonder kid Kai Havertz.
The German is one of the hottest properties in Europe after a stellar season at the BayArena.
Havertz has picked up where he left off following the resumption of the Bundesliga with five goals in four games.
It take his tally to 15 for the season meaning Leverkusen are poised to have several of the continent's heavyweights eyeing up the 20-year-old.
United are keen on adding young talent and see Havertz as the perfect player to help them return to the summit of English football, reports The Sun.
Jadon Sancho is already a top target but they could now eye a double Bundesliga raid and open the bidding for Havertz at £50m.
Leverkusen are likely to demand more than that for their prized asset who has also been linked with Liverpool and Real Madrid.
Havertz is able to play in an array of attacking positions which makes him a valuable option.
But German great Michael Ballack has urged him to remain at Leverkusen due to the relaxed environment on offer.
"Players with his quality are in demand everywhere, but I think he's in good hands in Leverkusen," he told SportBild.
"The general conditions there are perfect for top young players and their further 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.
