Midfielder Havertz is keen on winning the Champions League with Arsenal

All indications suggest Havertz is lined up to play an attacking midfielder role at Arsenal. This comes after so much debate about where he could play given his versatility. Well, interestingly, it could be a chance for him to play in midfield again that convinced the 24-year-old to join Arteta’s project.

Apparently, the German is eyeing an attacking midfielder role in the German national team, and him playing that role frequently is what gives him the best chance to be the German playmaker in next year’s Euros, which will be hosted in his home country.

The former Bayer Leverkusen star once admitted he likes playing from midfield, bursting into the opposition’s box. Back in 2021, he admitted in an interview: “More or less, I’m a midfield player, but I like to go into the box, and maybe that’s why not every defensive player has me on their mind—I just run through the midfield and then I’m there.”

Havertz’s move to the Emirates is a big deal; in fact, if Arsenal weren’t going for Declan Rice, he would have been the most important acquisition this summer. The hope is that he finds his mojo at the Emirates, as he admitted in his first interview at Arsenal: “It’s super exciting for me personally. I’m so glad to join this amazing club. This club has such a big history, and I hope we can achieve lots of things, and I’m just looking forward to meeting all the players, the staff, and yeah, it’s going to be exciting.”

He’s also keen on playing in the Champions League with Arsenal, and maybe getting another Winners medal. “I think the Champions League is a special tournament and I think every football player just loves to play there,” he said.

“I was fortunate to win the trophy and for me it was the best feeling I’ve ever had. So to play there again next season with Arsenal is very exciting for me. Hopefully I can bring some good attributes into the team, hopefully to win the trophy again. Because I think it’s the most special trophy to win.”

Obviously with Man City’s Treble winning season, the biggest bookies around like W88 have installed the Cityzens as 2/1 favourites to retain the Champions League, but the Gunners are priced at a respectable 14/1, only behind massive European sides like Bayern Munich, Barcelona, PSG and Real Madrid, but after our brilliant transfer window that price will surely start dropping the further Arsenal progress.

And with a previous winner like Havertz in the team, perhaps our chances are improving every day!

  1. Still can’t really figure out how Havertz fits into the team. Maybe Arteta is going for 3-2-4-1. You would expect a 65 mil player to walk straight into the team and Odegaard being the captain is the first name on the team sheet.


    It feel it will be too risky to play 433 midfield of Rice, Hevertz and Odegaard. If Arteta wants to really improve this team, then none of our first 11 of last.season should be allowed to leave.
