Chelsea have turned down Arsenal’s first offer for Kai Havertz but the player is still eager to move to the Emirates Stadium this summer.
Arsenal are aiming for blockbuster deals in this summer transfer window. The “Gunners” were contacted to recruit Declan Rice from West Ham for a fee of more than £ 100 million and are also interested in Southampton’s Romeo Lavia. Arsenal targeted Kai Havertz to strengthen the attack, but the first offer was rejected by Chelsea.
Arsenal are still negotiating with Chelsea to bring Kai Havertz to the Emirates Stadium. Reporter Matt Law’s information confirms that the German striker wants this transfer to become a reality and negotiations are ongoing.
Havertz made 47 appearances for Chelsea last season and scored nine goals. However, Chelsea are aiming to reduce staff under new coach Mauricio Pochettino. It is not yet clear if Kai Havertz is one of the names to leave Stamford Bridge, but Arsenal seem ready to test Chelsea in this deal.
Kai Havertz is a player who has received a lot of love from Chelsea fans. He is the one who scored the only goal to bring the Champions League title in 2021 for the Blues.
Chelsea spent 80 million euros to pick up Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen. Currently, the German player is valued at 60 million euros. He still has a contract with Chelsea until 2025. Havertz has received a lot of criticism for his poor performances last season and is likely to choose to leave Chelsea if the opportunity is good.
