David Ormstein claims Arsenal want to sign Kai Havertz

Arsenal’s summer transfer plans are coming together as they edge closer to securing a deal for Declan Rice in the coming weeks.

The Gunners have been pursuing Rice’s signature for several months, and it appears that their efforts are paying off. However, Rice won’t be the only Premier League player making the switch to Arsenal.

According to David Ornstein, Arsenal has initiated the first contact in their pursuit of Kai Havertz to bolster their squad during this transfer window.

The Gunners believe that Havertz’s playing style aligns well with their own, prompting them to explore the possibility of bringing him on board.

Ormstein suggests that initial discussions have been held to determine the feasibility of adding Havertz to the Arsenal squad for a negotiated fee.

The lack of Champions League football for Chelsea next season could potentially result in Havertz seeking a new challenge elsewhere, and Arsenal is keen to capitalise on this opportunity.

Just Arsenal Opinion

It is debatable that Havertz would be welcomed by most Arsenal fans, his lack of finishing in front of the goal is a worry, however, if Mikel Arteta wants him then in the manager we trust.

  1. I agree with you, Admin. Persuing Havertz is debatable, he’s got loads of potential but hasn’t been productive. As you said admin if the coach wants him, then we have to trust his judgment.

    I wonder which position is he targeted for? He can play any attacking position, maybe he needs to be developed in one position to fulfill that potential.

  2. Pepe for Arsenal: 112 matches 27 goals

    Havertz for Chelsea: 139 matches 32 goals.

    Take note that Havertz has played much as a striker

    Pepe is a complete flop while Havertz is worth our £70m bid.

    1. JA has been doing a good job of undervaluing our players. “Massive Flop” that he is right? Our players will never be sold for good prices when we the fans don’t value them

      1. Yep I gave the stats on another Article dgr8xt earlier ,apparently Chelsea want 75 million and we are in discussions to sign him ,I’m shocked at this TBH ,I thought the Rice deal was overpriced but this takes the biscuit.
        Imagine putting aside another 25 million and getting someone like Osimhen who actually Knows how to to put the ball in the net .
        Let’s hope Arteta and his side kick Edu know what they are doing ,going by their transfers over their last 3 years in charge I very much doubt it .

        1. What happens to Smith Rowe if Havertz comes? Is this another Maitland Niles case of rejecting approaches for a player while promising minutes in the summer only for him to find himself on the bench. I fear for Smith Rowe. He’s more productive than Havertz but will be the one to suffer if Havertz comes

        2. The probability for Havertz to Arsenal is < 5% or unlikely.

          Havertz hasn’t shown his potential playing for Chelsea, and some might think they could help him fulfill his potential.

    2. Doesn’t really make sense does it dgr8xt?
      Unless, of course, Havertz will fit Arteta’s style of play, while Pepe doesn’t.

      1. This will likely be the end of Smith Rowe’s Arsenal career especially if Rice also comes in for Xhaka

  3. If you want Arteta and edu to find your player very attractive, just put a high price tag on him.

    Which manager buy Viera for 30m

    Lokonga for around 20m? Players that can not even grave the bench of Brighton, Aston villa or Brentford.

    Now, we are reportedly going for Harvertz. Not because he is good but because he has a huge price tag while blocking the sale of Smith Rowe so that we can lose him for free in the nearest future.

    This is incredible!

  4. Hopefully Havertz rumours to AFC are just that rumours.
    Lets get Rice and Caicedo then look at other players…….

  5. I’ve always liked him as a player, fast, two footed and can run with the ball. He would fit in nicely with our fluid attacking front 3 but not sure if he would be a 20+ league goals a season forward that we need. I’m 50/50 on this one…..

  6. I have absolutely no faith in Edu , If its bringing ina nameless talent i can understand but Kai Havertz is literally one of the worst players at Chelsea and we want to pay for that .
    We wont accept it but Edu is stealing a living . Look at his signings and you will understand this fact .We keep wasting money , Mcalister cost less than 40 million and that is what we payed for Viera , We spent 20 million for Lokonga who we all know is sub par,

  7. Havertz to Arsenal must be a lightning rod while they are working on other prospects behind the scenes 🔴⚪️

    1. GB
      That ticks a couple of boxes
      He’ll just need the perfect crosses and arise the next Haaland 🙂

  8. He is the answer to having a solution in case odegaard gets injured. Also, he can play as a second striker (not alone as a 9). The player is an attacking midfielder, not a striker, not a forward of any kind, he just played there at chelsea because there were no other solid options. Whether he will show glimpses of the talent he showed in leverkusen, that is indeed debatable and up to him and mikel.
