HAKAN CALHANOGLU will not be leaving Bayer Leverkusen for any less than £29million, according to the club's chief executive Michael Schade.
Both Premier League clubs have watched the Turkish international this season and have been impressed with his performances for club and country.
Leverkusen are desperate to hang onto the dead-ball specialist, who has been hailed as the 'next Mesut Ozil.’
The midfielder is also attracting interest from Spanish giants Barcelona and Atletico Madrid
However Leverkusen chief executive Schade has admitted the Bundesliga side might have no option but to sell the 21-year-old.
He told German newspaper Bild: "We want to keep Hakan, but with us there is a pain threshold."
It has been suggested that a fee of £29m would be enough for Leverkusen to sell their star man, and when asked about the reported interest from England, Schade added: "I see that and I am calm and relaxed."
