Former Arsenal star Cesc Fabregas has drawn comparisons between himself and current Gunners midfielder Kai Havertz, highlighting the German’s versatility and adaptability in Mikel Arteta’s system. Fabregas, known for his own ability to excel in various midfield roles during his time at Arsenal and Barcelona, sees similarities in Havertz’s playing style and current situation.

Reflecting on Havertz’s role at Arsenal, Fabregas stated: “I don’t like to talk about me, but he reminds me a little bit of me at Barcelona because I used to play these two roles that he plays as a false nine, in a way, and a number eight, and I know exactly what it feels like.” This comparison sheds light on Havertz’s ability to operate both as a deeper-lying midfielder and a more advanced attacking threat, similar to Fabregas’s own versatility during his career.

Fabregas further elaborated on the challenges and benefits of such versatility, stating: “It’s good because he now feels an important player for the team but, at the same time, you don’t really know where you’re going to play the next game.” This highlights the adaptability required from players like Havertz, who must adjust their approach and positioning based on the team’s needs and the specific demands of each match.

Havertz’s contributions to Arsenal’s success this season, with 11 goals and 5 assists, demonstrate his ability to impact the game in various ways. His willingness to embrace different roles and adapt to Arteta’s tactical plans has been crucial in Arsenal’s impressive campaign. While Havertz may not yet have a defined, consistent position within the team, his versatility and adaptability make him a valuable asset for Arsenal, capable of influencing the game from multiple areas of the pitch.

As Havertz continues to develop and refine his game under Arteta’s guidance, the comparisons to Fabregas serve as a reminder of the potential he possesses. With his talent, versatility, and willingness to learn, Havertz has the opportunity to carve his own path to success at Arsenal and become a key figure in the club’s future endeavors.
