Arsenal line up transfer of record-breaking 19-year-old to replace Mesut Ozil

Arsenal are reportedly interested in the potential transfer of Bayer Leverkusen wonderkid Kai Havertz as Mesut Ozil’s future looks in doubt.

According to Calciomercato, the 19-year-old attacking midfielder is in the Gunners’ sights in what could be an exciting summer move for one of the most exciting young players in Europe.

The Gunners already have promising young duo Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi in the middle of the park, and Havertz ahead of them could make for a formidable trio for many years to come.

This rumour comes as Ozil is not playing regularly under manager Unai Emery, in what looks an increasingly bad call by the Spanish tactician.

Still, Havertz could be a fine long-term replacement, having shown how special he is by making history in the Bundesliga.

Kai Havertz to Arsenal to replace Mesut Ozil?

As reported on the official site of the German top flight, Havertz became the youngest player to reach 50 appearances in the Bundesliga.

This shows that, despite his age, the Germany international also has a decent level of experience, and has long been comfortable at the highest level.

It remains to be seen, however, if other big clubs could join the running for his signature as he truly looks an elite talent with a big future in the game.
