ARSENAL READY TO SELL KAI HAVERTZ?
There has been some stunning reports in the media that Arsenal may be open to letting Kai Havertz leave in January.
Havertz was one of the shock transfers of the summer after ARSENAL made the strange decision to make a move for the German after Chelsea decided that they would cash in, and he made the £65 million move across London.
Havertz really struggled to live upto the expectations on his shoulders at Stamford Bridge and failed to live upto the hype that he built up in the Bundesliga, when he was regarded as one of the best talents in the game.
But since his move to the Emirates, he has put in one or two decent performances, but unimpressed in that Gunners shirt, which has brought alot of criticism to the player and Mikel Arteta for backing his star.
WHAT IS THE LATEST –
According to recent reports, Arsenal are contemplating the possibility of selling Kai Havertz for a sum of €40 million, which is a considerable decrease compared to their initial cost of €65 million.
This willingness of the English club to take a significant loss on the initial investment signals a change in its strategy for a player who was supposed to be the team’s star for this season.
There is no doubt that Kai Havertz is a very gifted player and if the Gunners are able to get the best out of the man they will have a very special player on their hands, but it simply is not working.
They could have spent that £65 million on a player that they actually need and ARSENAL fans are just keeping their fingers crossed that he will get better.
But we would not be shocked to see him depart the club in the January window that is for sure.
