Arsenal transfer target Kai Havertz has put the Gunners on alert after failing to rule out a move away from Bayer Leverkusen next summer
With constant rumours in the British media all claiming Mesut Ozil is done at the Emirates after falling well down the pecking order under boss Unai Emery, focus for the Spaniard has now switched on to whom he will be signing to replace the German.
Gunners boss Unai Emery knows he needs to find an immediate replacement for Ozil and has his scouts out and about searching for potential targets, and one name that has been mentioned in the media lately is Havertz, who is one of the games brightest talents.
Havertz racked up 17 Bundesliga goals last season, the most ever managed by a teenager, and reports claim Arsenal were ready to splash the cash and pay around £40 million to try and secure a deal during the summer transfer window.
But the midfielder, who is now worth around £91 million, has put a number of clubs on high alert after admitting that a move next summer could happen, he told Sky Germany: ‘They haven’t scared me off,
‘I don’t know exactly what it was like with Timo [Werner], but it just didn’t happen for me this year. I think there were a number of reasons why.
‘But I’m happy to be here and stay in Leverkusen for another year. We’ll see what will happens next summer.’

Steve Parish has promised to deliver Arsenal target Wilfried Zaha the ‘happy ending’ he desires — by allowing him to leave for the right price.
Zaha was in the headlines over the summer transfer window for all the right reasons, as some of the biggest clubs in the game showed an interest in the wingers signature after another impressive campaign for Palace.
However, despite admitting on numerous occasions that he is interested in a big move, Palace stuck a massive price tag on the head of the winger and nobody wanted to pay the massive £80 million price tag that was placed on the winger.
But the Crystal Palace chairman is insistent that he must first find a replacement for the 26-year-old winger and suggested he will not stand in his way any longer if the price is right.
‘I’m sure it has a happy ending for everybody,’ said Parish on the TalkSport website. ‘That’s what I want to generate and I’m sure we’ll make that happen.
‘We’ve all been young, but the situation was not right for anybody this summer. You think at the time it is, but I wouldn’t put a cap on this kid’s talent.
‘I’ve watched him every week for 10 years, he scored the first goal in the first game after we bought the club when he was 16. So there’s even a bit of me that wants to see what he can do at a top club, and I certainly wouldn’t want to be the person who stopped that.

‘I feel he deserves to get there, I hope it happens and sometimes it mystifies me he’s not up there already. I don’t know what he’s got to do — run the length of the pitch and beat four players? If people stood in my shoes having to replace him, trying to find someone in world football to do what he does, they would know.
‘We’re lucky to have him. But if that top club comes along and the money’s right, he’s an extraordinary talent and it’s going to be very difficult for us.’
