Eredivisie club Heracles Almelo recently made a Twitter post and jokingly announced that they have signed the Leverkusen star Kai Havertz. The post from the Dutch side came after the German team's coach Peter Bosz claimed that the German wonderkid was joining the Dutch club after their Europa League defeat to Inter Milan.
The-21-year old is under the radar of several top European clubs but has bee the main target of the Premier League side Chelsea.
When journalist quizzed Leverkusen coach about Havertz's future in the club and if he had played his last game, Bosz ended the discussion saying that the German International has joined the Dutch Club Heracles, who finished EIGHTH in last season’s Eredivisie. Peter said:
"Yes, I can exclusively announce he'll play for Heracles Almelo."
Soon after, Heracles joked back making an announcement of the signing of Kai. They shared a Photoshopped picture of the German in their jersey and captioned ‘Welkom Kai’ with the hashtag ‘#AnnounceHavertz’.

Chelsea are desperate to sign the Leverkusen forward who also wants to play under Frank Lampard. The German club have clearly told that they want around €100 million (£90m/$111m) while the Premier League are asking to lower the price in the region of €76m (£70m/$87m).
