In an exciting development for Arsenal fans, the club is on the verge of completing a remarkable transfer deal. Fabrizio Romano reports that the Gunners are on the verge of signing Chelsea star Kai Havertz in the coming hours. This unexpected move has sent shockwaves through the footballing world. Additionally, Arsenal’s proactive approach in the transfer market this summer has captivated fans. Furthermore, the potential addition of Havertz is poised to elevate their squad to new heights.
Impending Arrival of Kai Havertz
After enduring a rather underwhelming spell at Chelsea, Havertz’s potential move to Arsenal raised eyebrows among both fans and pundits. However, Fabrizio Romano’s recent tweet reveals that a deal has been struck between Arsenal and Chelsea for the transfer of Havertz. Romano labels the German as “sensational” and affirms that the transfer is nearing completion, indicating that the player will soon be wearing the Arsenal colors within the next few hours.
In the agreement between Arsenal and Chelsea, Arsenal will pay Chelsea an initial fee of £60 million. This fee could potentially increase to £65 million with add-ons. Furthermore, this investment will make Havertz the second most expensive signing in Arsenal’s history, only behind Nicolas Pepe‘s £72 million transfer from Lille in 2019.
Havertz’s Profile and Contributions
Kai Havertz, a flexible player who can play as a forward or attacking midfielder, transferred to Chelsea from Bayer Leverkusen in 2020 for around £71 million. Although he had some difficulties at Chelsea, the 24-year-old demonstrated his skills by scoring important goals, including the winner in the 2021 Champions League final. Arsenal fans will surely wish that Havertz can regain his top form and have a big impact at the Emirates.
Arsenal’s Ambitious Transfer Window
Mikel Arteta has been ambitious in the summer transfer market, actively seeking players to bolster the squad. The imminent acquisition of Havertz reinforces Arsenal’s determination to compete at the highest level. Nevertheless, this high-profile signing sends a clear message to their rivals and fans alike.
