Arsenal are said to be ready to ramp up their interest in Kai Havertz. The Gunners seem to have successfully closed a personal agreement with the German star.
Warm praise from Thierry Henry for Havertz will further convince Arsenal to push for a deal. Before that, the French legend compared Havertz to Robin van Persie. After Chelsea’s win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League last season, Henry commented on CBS Sports:
“I think Havertz played very well in the first goal as he was holding the ball very well. Sometimes he reminds me of Van Persie when he holds the ball with his back to goal. Robin van Persie has a very good left foot, his touches are always perfect and he tries to attract people.”
“This is why among players who used to be a winger or a No. 10, they can play a No. 9 because when he has his back to goal, Havertz can keep the ball well. Now he needs to make sure that I can turn that into more goals.”
