According to reports in The Sun, Pep Guardiola is understood to be a huge admirer of the Bayer Leverkusen attacking midfielder, with the Spaniard reportedly sending scouts to watch the German youngster in action.
In reaction to the reports, which were relayed by City Chief on Twitter, fans of Manchester City flocked to have their say on the matter, with many suggesting that City should concentrate their efforts in trying to sign a defender, while others have claimed that they would love to see City make a move for Havertz.
Would you like to see City make a move for Havertz this summer?
Manchester City have joined the £70m transfer race for Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz.
The 20-year-old German has been one of the best players in Europe this season, scoring 12 goals already including two on Monday against Werder Bremen.

What do we think?
In addition to this, the 20-year-old has scored a further three goals and has provided two assists in just three Europa League fixtures, averaging an even more impressive match rating of 8.08.
However, it would appear from their comments that the majority of City fans would rather see their club make a move for a defender this summer, despite the obvious talent of the £72.9 million-rated Havertz.
