Should Arsenal Sign This Young Bundesliga Star ASAP?

With Aaron Ramsey’s career at Arsenal over and Mesut Özil’s slowly drawing at an end, the club will inevitably need to strengthen its core with new talents.

This may not be imminent, but there are no doubts that Emery is already planning his next move. In our opinion, that move should be signing Kai Havertz.

True, his current value is no joke. It’s €90 million and rising, making him one of the most valuable footballers in the world. However, this might be an investment that Arsenal could very much benefit from.

All About Kai Havertz

This young football prodigy is one of the youngest superstars with an impressive international rating. He could be compared with the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Jadon Sancho.

Havertz is only 20 years old but has already been playing in Bayer Leverkusen since 2016 as a centre midfielder. The German player also became the youngest ever athlete in Bundesliga when he joined the club.

Early Career

Kai Havertz

Kai Havertz was born in 1999 in Aachen, Germany, and started playing football at the age of four. In 2003 he joined Alemannia Mariadorf, playing there for six years.

At ten, he moved on to Alemannia Aachen only to transfer again to Bayer Leverkusen a year later. There, he continued playing as a youth all the way until he joined the senior team in 2016.

As a youth at Leverkusen, Kai showed much promise. He scored 18 goals during this time and earned more than one Fritz Walter medal for his performances.

Achievements and Public Opinion

Here are some noteworthy stats among his other achievements:

  • Earned Fritz Walter gold medal for U-19 German players
  • Over 100 appearances and 28 goals under Leverkusen
  • Appeared 3 times in Germany’s National Football Team

Kai’s versatile gameplay earned him the name of Alleskönner, a true all-around player comparable to the aforementioned Özil as well as other legendary players.

Most bookmakers at Neuecasinoseiten and similar sites in Germany predict a bright future for this talent too.

So, seeing that Arsenal pays much attention towards Bundesliga, they are at a position to build a new dream team. It would start off with Markus Schubert at the far back and Kai Havertz right in the middle.

Would Bayer 04 Leverkusen Let Him Go?

When talking about a star like this, we’re confident that Havertz’s leave is inevitable. With the player’s value rising every month, it’s obvious that they will want to sell him in exchange for more affordable talents.

Of course, it’s never easy to predict where a footballer will eventually decide to go. However, Premier League is a very likely destination and Arsenal might be just the place for this rising star.

Possible Transfer Next Season?

The current contract that Havertz has with Bayer Leverkusen will end on the 30th of June, 2022. Therefore, quick transfer is not possible. However, it might not take that long for a pre-contract to take place between him and Arsenal.

By that time, it’s likely that Arsenal won’t have Özil in their ranks (his contract lasts until June 2021). This would leave an empty spot for Havertz, allowing the club to storm the Premier League by force.
