Real Madrid has been associated with numerous players in recent weeks and months. It should not be surprising, considering the persistent issue of lacking squad depth faced by Los Blancos. In addition, they have made several acquisitions, including Jude Bellingham and Fran Garcia, while Joselu has joined the team on a season-long loan. Furthermore, Brahim Diaz’s return from a three-season loan at AC Milan will be akin to a new signing.
Conversely, Real Madrid still needs to secure specific targets, and one of those is Kai Havertz.
Havertz is a player with whom Real Madrid has been associated for an extended period, even before his move to Chelsea. Moreover, this summer witnessed renewed speculation of the Spanish club’s interest in the German international. However, he is now set to join Arsenal instead.
According to a tweet from Fabrizio Romano, Havertz has successfully undergone the initial phase of medical examinations with Arsenal and is currently awaiting the signing of contracts from the club’s side. The agreement is expected to be finalized within the upcoming week.
Havertz emerged as an up-and-coming European player during his development at Bayer Leverkusen. However, his performances at Chelsea have yet to match the high expectations set for him.
Although Havertz had notable achievements, such as scoring decisive goals in the Champions League and Club World Cup, his overall performance could have improved on his initial expectations upon joining Chelsea.
There is a widespread belief that the fast-paced and intense nature of the Premier League does not align well with Havertz’s style of play and that he would be better suited to La Liga. However, Havertz is likely to continue his stay in London.
