6 goals, 5 assists – Arsenal signing this 20-year-old hotshot might get them an Ozil successor

Published

Former Bayern Munich star Dietmar Hamann has urged Arsenal to make a move for German sensation Kai Havertz in the summer, as per Football.london.

Havertz, 20, is a product of Aachen’s youth system. He moved to Bayer Leverkusen in August 2010 and was promoted to the club’s senior set-up two years later. Upon his debut for the German outfit, he became the youngest ever debutant in Bundesliga. Since then, he has established himself as one of the best playmakers in the country.

Despite his tender age, Havertz has already made 200 appearances for Leverkusen. His rise to the top has been a rather swift one and he has also become a regular member of the German national squad since making his debut in September 2018. Given his impressive performances in the past few years, Arsenal should make a move for him at the earliest.

Havertz – A future replacement for Mesut Ozil
Arsenal have scored only 40 goals so far in the league. And the majority of them have come from the boots of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Gabonese international has scored 17 goals and is the second-highest goalscorer in the top-flight.

Veteran Mesut Ozil has had a horrendous campaign, managing just 1 goal and two assists so far. Other than the World Cup 2014 winner, the Gunners don’t have any attacking midfielders in their ranks.

Gilles Simon believes doping rumours were spread about Rafael Nadal as many were uncomfortable with the idea he could simply be better than Roger Federer.

There were allegations of a connection between Nadal and Eufemiano Fuentes, the doctor who was ultimately jailed for his part in a Spanish cycle doping scandal.

No evidence has ever been produced linking Fuentes to Nadal, though, who has always very successfully denied any rumours to the contrary.

However, Simon believes the rumours only existed to discredit opinions that Nadal could actually be a better tennis players than Federer rather than just a better athlete.

“It is difficult to conceive [for some] that, in terms of game, Rafael Nadal could be better than Roger Federer,” Gilles Simon wrote in his new autobiography This Sport That Makes You Crazy

“We even spread rumours of doping on his account.

“Nadal does not fit into the framework. Moreover, I emphasize here that we never talk about the physique of Federer, who has little to envy that of Nadal.

“That he went five sets at 35 like what he did in Australia in 2017, it’s extraordinary. But no one noted this point.”
