Arsenal might be interested in signing Kai Havertz in this summer transfer window, and the statistic that shows why is his off-ball runs into the opposition penalty area. According to Opta, Havertz made 334 off-ball runs into the opposition penalty area in the Premier League in 2022-23, which was the second most of any player after Erling Haaland’s 349.

Havertz had a decent season with Chelsea, scoring seven goals and providing one assist in the Premier League to help them finish 12th on the league table. He still has two years remaining on his Chelsea contract, but Arsenal have already had one bid for him rejected by Chelsea.

One of Arsenal’s weaknesses in last months of last season was their lack of creativity and penetration from midfield. They relied heavily on their forwards to score goals and create chances, which put a lot of pressure on them. Havertz’s off-ball runs into the opposition penalty area could be exactly what Arsenal need to add more firepower to their attack.

Havertz is known for his versatility as he can play as an attacking midfielder or as a forward. He has excellent dribbling skills and can create chances for his teammates with his passing ability. His off-ball runs into the opposition penalty area show that he has excellent movement off-the-ball, which is essential for any attacking player.

In conclusion, Arsenal might be interested in signing Kai Havertz because of his off-ball runs into the opposition penalty area. He could add more creativity and penetration to Arsenal’s midfield, which could help them challenge for the Premier League title next season. However, it remains to be seen if Chelsea will be willing to sell him to a direct rival like Arsenal.
