Kai Havertz has revealed which shirt number he wants at Arsenal

When particular jersey numbers are mentioned, football fans immediately think of some of the game’s best players. When the number 10 is mentioned, many people immediately think of Messi; the same can be said of the number 7 for Ronaldo and the number 14 for Thierry Henry. Players’ jersey numbers are constantly changing these days, making it difficult to keep track of which jersey number they prefer.

Kai Havertz is set to join Arsenal from Chelsea, and there’s so much talk about which jersey number he’ll pick. But don’t you think it’s obvious which jersey number he’ll settle on?

The German has always won the No. 29 jersey, whether at Bayer Leverkusen, where he rose to prominence, or at Chelsea, and there’s reason to believe that at Arsenal, he will continue to have the number 29 at the back of his jersey. In 2021, he revealed to the Athletic why he settled on such an odd jersey number. “When I was young, I always used to play FIFA or Pro Evolution Soccer with my brother,” Havertz said.

“We always made ourselves in the game. My brother always put number 29 on his shirt. When I came to the professional game, and Leverkusen asked me what number I wanted to have, I asked them which numbers were free.

“When they said 29, I said I’d take it because of my brother.

“Sometimes it’s lucky for me, sometimes not, but I like the number, and now I think everybody knows me for it.”

Are you comfortable with Havertz as Arsenal’s New No. 29?

  1. Kai would be a good purchase if he can recapture his form of 2 years ago. Rice should grow a pair and insist that West ham let him go, or make a public statement that he is not interested in Man City and is committed to joining Arsenal and no other team. I think he is still too committed to West ham and is playing games for a bigger pay increase than the one they offered. All seems strange that he is not frustrated with Westham!I Arsenal should put a bid in for Tchouameni, a better technical DMC than Rice. I think Real would sell for £80 million.

  2. Kai the big secret purchase ( NOT). You would think Edu was sleeping with a reporter and talking in his sleep with all these leaks. Arsenal deals in the past was secret, but since Edu was hired the whole world knows our business. How comes Liverpool can purchase MacAlistair without any other team competing for his purchase? Because it was kept under wraps.

  3. The guy has been an abject failure in the Premier league. A real shot in the dark and disappointing on the face of it.

  4. Am not over impressed with Arsenal in this summer”s transfer market Haveetz is, a gamble and, Rice over priced I think we should be going for a proven striker and have Jesus as back up We need two new full backs and obviously a central midfielder or two Should be selling Partey Nelson and Pepe asap to raise more cash plus one of Balogun or Nketiah. Holding Lokonga Runarsson and the much over rated Patino should also be on way too Tierney and Xhaka to stay at the club
