Arsenal pick Kai Havertz as Mesut Ozil replacement

North London heavyweights Arsenal are said to be keeping a close eye on Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz who’s been identified as the perfect replacement for Mesut Ozil.

Ozil has endured a difficult time at the Emirates since the arrival of Unai Emery and could very well be on his way out of the club in the summer. The World Cup winner does not seem to be a part of Emery’s long-term plans which, on the other side, include Havertz.

The rising star of the German and European football has taken the world by storm this season with 12 goals and 5 assists for Bayer Leverkusen in all competitions.

The 19-year-old German talent is a central midfielder who can be deployed in both advanced position closer to the final third and in a more defensive role. As a proper box-to-box midfielder, Havertz is believed to be the kind of a player whose creativity and vision would be a natural fit for the club like Arsenal.
