Kai Havertz is accelerating his move to Arsenal.
European soccer transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano tweeted on Saturday (June 16): “Haberth has given the green light to Arsenal. 안전놀이터 Yesterday there were positive signals from both clubs. There is no problem with the personal agreement with Arsenal. At the moment, Chelsea want £75 million, but they are willing to be flexible.”
Arsenal is investing heavily. The Gunners are also preparing for a major investment from owner Stan Kroenke. According to British outlet Sports Bible, the club has received a £2 billion ($3.2535 billion) cash infusion.
In addition to the owner’s support, the club also has the backing of director Edu Gaspar. According to the media, he is preparing to support the club on a “different level” next season. He wants to invest even more than last season.
Arsenal are planning to invest heavily and have made a formal offer for Chelsea’s Haberz. David Onsteins, who works for the British publication The Athletic and is considered a reliable source for transfer news from London clubs, reported on Friday that “Arsenal have made an offer for Habertz. He currently has two years left on his contract with Chelsea, and Bayern Munich are also interested in him. Meanwhile, Arsenal are also preparing to make a formal offer for West Ham United’s Declan Rice.”
Romano added on Friday: “Arsenal are in talks to sign Haberth after positive contact with him. He is keen on a move. Chelsea want 75 million pounds (about $121.9 million), but Arsenal are not willing to lower the price.”
Last season, Haberth struggled for Chelsea, who finished mid-table in the league with seven goals and one assist in 35 games. Haberth also scored the winning goal against Manchester City in the UCL final of the 2020-21 season to lift Chelsea to the top of Europe.
Haberth, who is also being pursued by Arsenal, is said to be in no danger of reaching a personal agreement, with the key being the two clubs agreeing on a transfer fee. Chelsea, meanwhile, initially wanted £75 million, but have reportedly given the green light to an agreement with Arsenal, with the fee said to be flexible.
