According to the Daily Telegraph, Arsenal also want to sign Kai Havertz after this season.
The 23-year-old arrives at Stamford Bridge in a deal worth £75m in 2020. However, Kai Havertz is among the names that could be sold this summer as the club look to cut down on the bloated squad. to raise funds for the transfer.
Real Madrid approached the German international after Karim Benzema moved to Saudi Arabia to play football. However, the deal was frozen due to too high demands from Chelsea.
Notably, according to the Daily Telegraph, Arsenal are also closely monitoring Havertz’s situation. The Blues will not stop if Havertz wants to leave. However, they are determined to recover the capital close to the cost paid to Bayer Leverkusen three years ago.
The £70 million asking price by Chelsea makes many clubs afraid even though they think this figure is reasonable. Notably, the source claims Arsenal are not willing to pay more than £ 50 million for the German striker.
Real Madrid has the same opinion as Arsenal. This leaves Chelsea in a dilemma. Havertz’s contract expires in 2024 and so far there has been no indication that Havertz wants to renew.
Havertz’s situation is similar to Mason Mount’s. Chelsea are ready to sell out but offer too high a price even with only one year left on the contract.
