Gabby Agbonlahor has expressed his shock over Arsenal in their decision to pursue Kai Havertz. The former Premier League striker finds it “strange” that Arsenal would target Havertz, who had a difficult season at Chelsea.

Arsenal fans and Agbonlahor puzzled by the move

Agbonlahor, speaking on talkSPORT, shares the sentiments of Arsenal fans who are confused by the club’s pursuit of Kai Havertz. He also questioned the logic behind this transfer.

The German international is expected to join Arsenal in a reported £65 million deal. This is despite his underwhelming performance last season, where he only scored seven goals in the Premier League. Agbonlahor believes that what Arsenal truly need is a clinical striker who can provide a consistent goal-scoring threat, capable of scoring 20 league goals. He believes that Havertz does not fit to that role.

Havertz’s potential impact on Arsenal’s squad

The arrival of Havertz at Arsenal would undoubtedly add depth to Mikel Arteta’s squad, bolstering the team’s options and strengthening the bench. Havertz would enhance Arsenal as a team, potentially maintaining their high quality.

Mikel Arteta is a long admirer of the player as per the reports. Arteta likes the off-the-ball runs and movement of Havertz. This would be extremely helpful offensively with the No. 8 role, and also as a backup No. 10 role for Havertz. One of Havertz’s best qualities is his versatility; in addition to playing behind the striker or as an advanced midfielder, he can also play out wide.

By improving the overall team performance, Havertz’s presence could provide the platform for the young wide players to flourish. And, players like Saka and Martinelli can potentially reach the “world-class” level.

While Gabby Agbonlahor finds it shocking and perplexing that Arsenal is targeting Kai Havertz for a potential transfer, only time will tell how this signing is going to work out for Arsenal. Fans can only wish that this works wonders for their team.
