‘Welcome to Arsenal!’ – Gunners fans go nuts over what Kai Havertz has done for Bayer Leverkusen



Kai Havertz is a player many Arsenal supporters are keen on.

The Bayer Leverkusen ace was linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium when there was talk of club’s former head of recruitment Sven Mislintat looking to secure a deal for the 20-year-old.

With an impressive tally of 12 goals and eight assists in 35 appearances across all competitions this season, Havertz would certainly be an ideal signing for the Gunners and Mikel Arteta.

Although, the north London outfit would likely face strong competition from Premier League rivals Manchester United and Liverpool as well as a number of Europe’s top clubs – most notably the reigning Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

But they’ve been urged by Bild reporter Christian Falk to make a move this summer.

“According to my information, Bayern is still the number one option for Havertz,” he said. “Bayern and Leverkusen are still in close contact, the bosses Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Rudi Voller are old friends.

“It is not certain whether the transfer will happen this summer.

“The corona crisis makes such expensive transfers difficult. Leverkusen wants over 100 million Euros for the player. But Havertz wants to change this summer.

“If Bayern does not get serious, Liverpool will have a great chance.

“But the question is also for the Reds: Does the club want to pay such a high transfer fee for a German talent? I honestly can’t imagine it.

“Arsenal should also be interested. Arsenal would need Havertz more urgently than Liverpool, perhaps the Gunners pay this crazy price.”

And it would appear that many Arsenal fans agree.

After watching Havertz score a first-half brace for Leverkusen in their Bundesliga clash against Werder Bremen on Monday night, many took to Twitter and sent a transfer message to the club’s head of football Raul Sanllehi.

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training



Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
