Opinion: What If The ‘Kai Havertz To Arsenal’ Interest And Deal Is A Bluff From Mikel Arteta And Edu; Just To Keep Chelsea Away From Caicedo!?

Kai Havertz to Arsenal is one of the most talked-about transfer rumours at present. The Gooners want to know why Mikel Arteta is interested in him. And why the interest of a top club like Arsenal, in a player that has been a major-flop at Chelsea. The German international has failed to impress with the Blues. And many Arsenal fans feel that he will be a total waste of money.

Plus, from the recent reports, it is suggested that the Havertz money will be used to fund the deal for Moises Caicedo, as Chelsea wish to comply with the FFP rules. And they have already signed a lot of players in recent times. This is why this deal is as crucial to the Blues, as it is to Arsenal and Bundesliga champs Bayern, who are also interested in signing the attacker.

However, as Arsenal’s interest in the Havertz deal grows stronger, Bayern’s lessens. It seems that the player would now prefer to live in London. But there are still many serious questions to be answered!? Are Mikel Arteta and Edu serious about signing him!?

Kai Havertz To Arsenal; Is This Deal A Bluff To Prevent Chelsea From Signing Caicedo!?

Now, Chelsea wants to sell Havertz and a few other players, like Kovacic, before they can add more players like Caicedo to their squad. Not that Todd Boehly doesn’t have the money to spend. But, there need to be some sales done, to be on the right side of FFP.

And, at the start of the season, Arsenal wanted both Declan Rice and Moises Caicedo. However, West Ham have been tough-balling the Gunners. The latter are still trying to get a deal done for the West Ham skipper, after the club rejected their first bid for him.

With that being said, Mikel Arteta and co. want to be sure that Declan Rice will sign for them. There have been claims that Manchester City is also interested in the midfielder. If that is the case, then Arsenal have to take sufficient precaution as to have a backup plan.

Caicedo could be that plan. And with Arsenal showing interest in signing Havertz, Chelsea are waiting for things to pan out. But, if the Gunners continue to stall talks, the Blues might have to wait a bit longer. If the talks with the Hammers break down for Arsenal for any reason, they can always turn to Brighton then.

So, it could be a well-thought ploy by the Arsenal hierarchy and management. The only concern would be what Bayern want. Even they are keen on signing Havertz. But have not made any real offer yet. So, things could change if they get serious and enter the market with an official bid.

What Will The Gunners Do If Bayern Decides To Show Up To The Table For Havertz!?

As of now, the interest from Bayern has just been media talk. They have not gone in seriously to sign either Rice or Havertz. Both players seem happy in London. And might want to move to Arsenal. But, the Gunners need to act fast!!

If they can’t get the deal for Declan Rice done, then their backups won’t wait too long. If Chelsea can sell some of their other assets soon, they might push for Caicedo. At that point, Arsenal could be in a tight spot.

Kai Havertz to Arsenal has attracted a lot of attention. Chelsea fans are happy that he is leaving Stamford Bridge. And they are also pleased that the club wants £70m for him. If the deal does happen, they will recover most of the money they spent on him.

Further, they will also have sufficient funds to go after players like Caicedo and more. That is, if the need does arise at any point in time!! For now, we wait to see how these transfer sagas unfold. Only time will tell!!
