According to a recent report by the Express, Arsenal scouts are keeping tabs on Bayer 04 Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz and have been left impressed by his performances this season. It is believed that the Bundesliga prospect is now on the Gunners’ radar as they look to build for a bigger and brighter future at the Emirates Stadium.
The 19-year-old has already put in some dazzling displays in the German top-flight which has caught the attention of the Arsenal scouts. Havertz has started in all of Leverkusen’s 11 league matches this season, scoring three goals and grabbing two assists so far. However, it is his performances in the UEFA Europa League that has been exceptional as he has found the back of the net three times and set up three goals in three group stage matches in the competition.
However, Bayer 04 Leverkusen sporting director Jonas Boldt recently shed some light on the talented midfielder’s future and said, “There is no reason to be uneasy,”
“His future lies in Leverkusen, where Kai has an environment where he can excellently develop.
“It’s nice to see the boy progressing from month to month, and of course we’re pleased that he has done so well on his [full] national debut, confirming our path in Leverkusen.
“Club, player and everyone has agreed that Leverkusen is the right club, so logically there were no requests.”
What Will Havertz Bring To The Emirates Stadium?
The German starlet is very quick and can dribble with the ball past his opponents with ease and grace. His link-up play is also outstanding in the opposition half as he can play some nice through balls for the front players to feed on. However, Havertz’s shots from range often lack power and accuracy while he also needs to work on his strength if he wants to make it in the Premier League.
Should The Gunners Move In For Him?
At 19, the Bundesliga wonderkid has established himself as one of the best young prospects in German football, but the jury is still out on whether he can perform well under pressure at the highest level. It would be better for the Gunners to hold off for now and probably monitor him a bit more before deciding on whether to acquire his services.
