Lineker rates struggling Arsenal star above Martial and Richarlison

Gary Lineker has expressed his opinion by rating Arsenal’s Kai Havertz above Tottenham’s Richarlison and Manchester United’s Anthony Martial.

Havertz made a move to Arsenal during the previous transfer window, but he has faced challenges in establishing a significant impact within the team since his arrival. Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta had identified Havertz as an ideal replacement for Granit Xhaka.

Despite the high expectations that accompanied his transfer, there is a prevalent scepticism among Arsenal fans about Havertz’s potential to succeed at the club. As a result, Havertz now faces the substantial challenge of proving himself as a top-tier player at the Emirates Stadium during the current campaign.

As fans continue to criticise his anonymous presence during games, Lineker said, as quoted by Metro Sport:

‘The others at the moment have underachieved a bit. Martial has the talent but I don’t know if he’s a bit soft mentally or unlucky with injuries.

‘I would personally put Havertz first, then either or, maybe Martial, because he has a record, and Richarlison still has it to do, although I think he’s capable.’

Just Arsenal Opinion

Havertz is not a player we can trust and seems he will only improve a little before this season ends.

However, the jury is still out on him and it would be great if he justifies the fee we have paid for his signature.

  1. So threepence is more than tuppence and more than a penny as well.
    . So what!? That says nothing about anything of value!

  2. Why are we comparing ourselves with players whose teams finished 3rd and 8th? Our benchmark should be players from clubs who finished as winners if we want to be part of that elite group

  3. I really feel for Havertz coming to arsenal having to play a position he’s never played in before and he’s getting slaughtered so so sad I think he needs time to adjust to this new position he’s been asked to play

    1. We payed 65M this Guy has to play were ever the coach need him to play plus this is the position he player at in leverkursen sometimes We need to stop making excuses put they guy on the bench until he will gel with the team learn his position

    2. If he is good as his admirers lead us to believe he could play any position position either 6, 8, 9, 10, 11 6/8 or whatever other number they come up with. That said I am sure a quarter of a million a week eases his pain!!!!
      I feel for the bench warmer’s who are forced to watch his inactive performances.

  4. As long as we’re still getting three points I don’t mind waiting for Havertz’s forward game to take off Havertz being part of a winning team will raise his confidence and boost his levels the fans at the Emirates will also help to boost the young mans ego and then I’m sure we’ll see a better all-round player
