Arsenal keen on Chelsea attacker Kai Havertz

Arsenal are interested in signing Chelsea forward Kai Havertz, reports journalist and Blues super fan Alex Goldberg.

The popular Chelsea YouTuber revealed on his The Byline podcast on Patreon that the Gunners are yet to approach the Blues.

However, they have touched base with the representatives of the Germany international.

Arsenal will look to bolster their attack this summer in preparation for another title challenge next term.

The north London club will also be keen to impress in the Champions League after returning to the competition for the first time since 2017.

Havertz is expected to leave Chelsea this summer and has already been linked with a move to Real Madrid.

The Spanish club want a new striker after losing French hitman Karim Benzema.

Havertz has largely played as a striker for the Blues, featuring as their number 9 for most of the season.

The 23-year-old featured in 47 games across all competitions for the west London club, scoring nine times and assisting once.

Havertz is popular among the Chelsea fanbase for grabbing the only goal in their win against Manchester City in the Champions League final in 2021.

The former Bayer Leverkusen star can also play as an attacker behind the striker and on both wings.

Arsenal are not short of options in the final third, but they need quality depth next term.

Manager Mikel Arteta could do with the versatility and experience of the Chelsea star.

Havertz will be keen to play in the Champions League next season but Chelsea missed out entirely on Europe.

It remains to be seen whether he would be interested in joining Arsenal, but a move could end up benefitting both sides.
