Arsenal are monitoring the situation of Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz, it has been claimed. According to Calciomercato, Arsenal have sent scouts to watch the German sensation, who is regarded as one of the most talented young midfielders in European football.
Arsenal thinks, Havertz is a proactive attacking midfielder, who likes to use his quality on the ball to ease his side’s transition from defence to attack.
The 19-year-old has shown excellent composure on the ball even under tight pressure and that allows him to not only link-up with teammates but also create opportunities in the final third.
Havertz is also an excellent passer of the ball, having attained a pass accuracy of 85% and his ability to rotate possession swiftly tunes in well with Arsenal’s high octane build-up under Emery.
Additionally, Havertz’s ability to skip past onrushing challenges effortlessly often allows him to evade the opposition press in midfield and that could be hugely beneficial in the fast-paced nature of the English game.
Thus, the Bayer Leverkusen star is a viable transfer target for Arsenal as he can not only add more fluidity in Arsenal’s attacking game but also provide more creativity in the final third and considering his age, he could be an excellent long-term investment for the Gunners.
