Who would Arsenal fans prefer? Moussa Diaby or Kai Havertz?

Despite all the current rumours saying that we are trying hard to buy Kai Havertz from Chelsea, it appears that Arsenal have reportedly taken the lead in the race to sign Moussa Diaby from Bayer Leverkusen as well, surpassing Newcastle United and who was also attracting interest from Manchester United.

The French winger has spent four years with the German side, making 172 appearances since his move from Paris Saint-Germain.

While Eddie Howe’s men had been prioritizing Diaby as a target for the past year and a half, the player has never considered the club a top priority, allowing the Gunners to move ahead in the pursuit of his signature. Manchester United is also said to have shown interest in the 23-year-old.

The North London club retain a long-term interest in the player

Diaby’s impressive performances in Germany, scoring 14 goals and providing 11 assists last season, have sparked attention from top clubs. A potential return to PSG has also been speculated, given his significant improvement during his time at Leverkusen.

Bayer Leverkusen is reportedly seeking around £65 million for the French winger, and the club has agreed to let him leave along with his teammate Jeremie Frimpong, who is also linked to Manchester United.

Arsenal’s attack can be upgraded with the acquisition of highly-talented Diaby

While Diaby’s contract with Die Werkself runs until 2025, the club has a history of selling players before they enter the final year of their contracts. Currently with the French national team squad for Euro 2024 qualifiers, Diaby’s future destination remains uncertain.

Now the fact is that although Havertz is very talented and has extensive EPL and European experience, I think that Diaby is much more likely to score many more goals from the wing than the Chelsea man.

Who would you prefer out of Diaby and Havertz?

  1. Moussa Diaby have signed a new contract with Leverkusen… So he is not for sale.. if on sale you need 80-100m.. so forget about Diaby… At least talk of havertz and atsu fati… Or yerry pinno of Leverkusen.

  2. Get both.. We got CL this season and we need experienced, polished players. Diaby and Havertz will fit well as Saka and Ødegaard’s substitutes. Plus Havertz can play any attacking position (11, 7, 10 and false 9). We need proper depth this coming season. Having a substandard bench really let us down this season. So I hope the hierarchy have learned something from this. Back the gaffer and pluck the fruits! COYG!!!

  3. Why spend so much for a backup player who won’t unseat Saka or Martinelli? Both our wingers PL proven and Martinelli had more goals.

    Rather they do their jobs and find good value backups like Trossard rather than always picking low hanging fruit costing all those millions.

    Then again it’s only media gossip and we may not be in for him at all.

    1. No gossip Chelsea rejected a bold bid from us for Havertz, somewhere between early Thursday and Friday.

      Havertz quality is of such, he could starts many games for us in the coming campaign.
      This is a marquee player that has only been devalued due to his present club.

        1. Reggie: Yes he can, he’s permanent class.

          For all the record deals struck at the Bridge since Boehly took charge not one player has looked improve.
          Most of the players at Chelsea some joins with massive reputation all seems insignificant.

          That’s speaks volumes of the current system in change, no identity.
          A world beat once unplayable just dosen’t switch off like that.

          If it was another season and Chelsea got relegated, we could never blame Havertz, Mudryk, Sterling, Pulsic or Cucucrella.

          Am not seeing a single player coping at the bridge

      We need the same quality from starter to back up. Players are expensive now and to win trophies are all down to money.

      Some fans are complaining about signing Havertz. Madrid didn’t rate Odegaard and we got him for 30m, he’s now our captain and has proven to everyone that we made the right choice. Let’s give Edu and MA the benefit of the doubt. They see things that we fans do not see. Perhaps, chelsea couldn’t use him well.

  4. Oliseh is better than the two. Pay Crystal Palace 50m pounds and have him. Diaby is too fragile, although better than Havertz. I still never believe that Arteta woke up one morning and ask the technical board to get Havertz for him! That will be one of the most insane thing to do. Havertz is never anywhere nearer to Ozil.

  5. I think it depends upon when and where Arteta wants to play them!

    At the end of the day, the question is, are these two players going to really improve us, or are they just more bench fodder?

    I fear they are the latter
