Havertz, who is 24 years old, was signed by Arsenal from Chelsea for a whopping £65 million in the summer transfer window of 2023. This acquisition has been seen as a major coup for the club, as Havertz is considered one of the most talented young players in world football.

“He gives us something different. His height, for example, where he can be a target man if we need him to beat the press. He’s playing as an attacking midfielder for now but I’m sure throughout the season he’ll be used in different positions.” said Mikel Arteta to the press.

Arteta highlighted Havertz’s height as one of his standout attributes. The German international stands at an impressive 6 feet 2 inches tall, making him a valuable asset in aerial duels and as a target man. This versatility allows Arteta to utilize him in different positions throughout the season.

While Havertz is currently playing as an attacking midfielder, Arteta hinted that he may be deployed in various roles as the season progresses. This flexibility will provide Arsenal with tactical options and allow them to adapt to different game situations.

The signing of Havertz represents Arsenal’s ambition to strengthen their squad and compete at the highest level. The Gunners have been working tirelessly during this transfer window to bolster their attacking options, and Havertz’s arrival adds significant firepower to their lineup.

Havertz’s performances at Chelsea were highly impressive, showcasing his technical skills, vision, and ability to score goals. He has already proven himself at the highest level and has become a key player for both club and country.

Arteta’s admiration for Havertz’s abilities suggests that he sees him as an integral part of his plans for the upcoming season. The manager recognizes that Havertz brings something unique to the team with his height and versatility.

Arsenal fans are eagerly anticipating seeing Havertz in action for their beloved club. His arrival has injected excitement into the fanbase, and there is a sense of optimism surrounding the team’s prospects for the upcoming season.
