REPORTER GIVES TRANSFER NEWS ON ARSENAL’S PLAN FOR CHELSEA’S PLAYER

Dharmesh Sheth asserts that Arsenal’s pursuit of the transfer of Kai Havertz could compel Chelsea’s hand.

The Sky reporter added that ‘Chelsea are in a bit of a situation’ with Kai Havertz because he has two years remaining on his contract and this is their opportunity to secure the’maximum’ transfer fee.

Sheth stated on Sky Sports’ Transfer Show (14/06/2 at 7:05 pm) that Arsenal ‘aren’t prepared’ to pay around ‘£70 million’ for the player, despite their desire to sign the former Champions League champion.

Some are surprised that Mikel Arteta wants to acquire a player who struggled for a team that finished in the bottom half of the league this year.

The 24-year-old showed great promise when he first arrived at Stamford Bridge, including winning the European Cup, but since then, he has declined.
Sheth explained that the German international scored only seven goals in the Premier League and that Arsenal is currently vying for his signature.

Sheth stated, “Chelsea are in a bit of a situation.” “His contract has two years remaining, not one.

If Kai Havertz is not going to sign a new contract at Stamford Bridge, and if he has two years remaining on his current deal, it would seem that this summer would be the best moment to sell him for the highest possible transfer fee.

“They acquired him from Bayer Leverkusen in 2020 for approximately £70 million, so you would expect them to want to recoup a significant portion of that sum if they were to transfer him to Arsenal. Similar to Mason Mount (and Manchester United), I don’t believe Arsenal is willing to pay that much, so there appears to be a disparity in valuation.

Due to their contract situations and the fact that Mauricio Pochettino would like to bring in his own players, Chelsea may be compelled to sell players.
Will Havertz serve as a reserve for Arsenal?

Will he displace Gabriel Jesus from the starting lineup? Or to bolster the team?

If the latter is true, it is more understandable to pursue a player of that caliber, as he would significantly improve your reserve.

But to pay anywhere near the amount Chelsea is demanding for the player is illogical, and Arsenal should avoid doing so.
