Photo of Kai Havertz in an Arsenal shirt ‘leaked’ as Gunners appear set to sign German international from Chelsea for £65m
A picture of Kai Havertz in an Arsenal shirt has apparently leaked on Twitter ahead of his planned move to the Gunners.
Mikel Arteta’s side are set to secure the signing of Havertz from London rivals Chelsea for a fee of £65million.
The image shows Havertz smiling while wearing Arsenal’s new home shirt for the 2023-24 campaign.
The Germany international is expected to become Arsenal’s first signing this summer.
Although Havertz has been through tough times at Chelsea, Arteta appreciates his versatility, with the 24-year-old having been used up front, as an attacking midfielder and on the outside.

After joining Bayer Leverkusen in 2020, Havertz made 139 appearances for Chelsea and scored 32 goals, while providing 15 assists.
He memorably scored Chelsea’s winner against Manchester City in the Champions League final in 2021.
Arsenal are also looking to make other additions to their squad, most notably with their pursuit of Declan Rice.
Arsenal are expected to make a third offer for Rice after rejecting two offers, although Manchester City are also interested in the West Ham midfielder.
Meanwhile, Arsenal have made an improved £41.5m offer for Ajax defender Jurrien Timber.
