Pundit Graeme Souness claims Kai Havertz won’t improve with time as Arsenal should have thought twice before signing him this summer.
The North-London club spent £65 million for the German international in the summer transfer window. Havertz have been showing good signs of form in his first five apperances for Arsenal this season.
However, the forward didn’t manage to score goal or provide assists in those outings for Gunners. His best performance so far came against PSV Eindhoven in Champions League this week.
However, writing on Daily Mail, Pundit Graeme Souness gave his verdict on Kai Havertz :-
“Not all of Arsenal’s spending makes sense to me,” he began.
“They’ve laid out £65million on Kai Havertz.
“Surely you’re not spending that kind of money on what he’s shown at Chelsea in the past three seasons?
“They’ve shelled out in the hope that Mikel Arteta can get a very, very different tune out of him than Frank Lampard, Thomas Tuchel or Graham Potter ever did.
“Good luck with that one, Mikel.
“We live in a world where stats have become a very popular part of the game for the anoraks.
“But historically only two stats provide a judgment in black and white terms.
“For a goalkeeper: how many games have you played and how many clean sheets did you keep?
“And for a striker: how many games have you played and how many goals did you score?
“Havertz has scored 19 Premier League goals f4across the entirety of three seasons for Chelsea.”
“Please draw your own conclusions.”
Pundit often criticise players if they don’t perform upto the mark in certain circumstances and that’s why Havertz needs to start performing up to his standards.
