Paul Merson continues to trust in Arsenal’s new signing

Paul Merson has maintained his support for the signing of Kai Havertz, even though the German did nothing of note in his first competitive game for Arsenal.

Signing Havertz came as a surprise to most Arsenal and football fans in general and a good number still do not understand the rationale behind the transfer.

Havertz had been struggling on the books of Chelsea and remains one player that needs to really impress if he is to get the whole fan base on his side.

However, Merson has been a surprise supporter of the German and has again reiterated that the ex-Chelsea man is a player that Arsenal needs.

He writes in his column on Sports Keeda:

“I also don’t see Kai Havertz as a midfielder; however, I have faith in him and he is the kind of player you want when games open up. 

“It will be interesting to see how Mikel Arteta goes about using these players over the course of the new campaign.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Havertz has not impressed many, but it is good that he has an outspoken supporter like Merson and that should make the German feel good.

Other fans are waiting for him to prove it was the right decision to add him to the group at the Emirates.

  1. Fans will always be devisive when it comes to Havertz. Even if he does his duty well. Now what those duties are depend on Arteta, and fans might not understand those duties that’s a different issue. I don’t think Havertz is here to 20+ goals this season all by himself, but increase the overall team goal tally by a good margin.

  2. I think some fans would have shot Xhaka sometimes ago but they later loved him because of the magic work of the gaffer , fingers crossed, but I believe by this time of next season fan will not be happy whenever Kai isn’t in the lineup

    1. Havertz is a class act who was unfortunate in that his time at Chelsea coincided with a period of turmoil at that Club on and off the field of play.At Arsenal he has been given the opportunity to resurrect his career which ignited when he lit up the Bundesliga with BL.Numerous international caps followed and, significantly, despite changes of Manager, he remains a first eleven pick for Germany.Some of the drivel which has appeared on JA recently concerning Havertz beggars belief particularly from those who are openly hostile towards him and accuse him of being slow and lazy.Nothing could be further from the truth but in the eyes and minds of some they are unable to recognise a talented footballer due to their own failings.Havertz will prove to be a sound investment for Arsenal, and when he starts to produce on a regular basis, I trust his critics will have the decency to admit they were wrong.

  3. Well said Grandad a truly classy player he will get better at Arsenal with the amount of quality around him he’ll wanna up his game also
