Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United were all interested in Kai Havertz’s services this summer after his stellar campaign for Bayer Leverkusen last season.
The 20-year-old attacking midfielder scored 17 times in 34 Bundesliga appearances, and despite plenty of interest from the three Premier League giants and other European heavyweights, remained with Bayer Leverkusen.
Havertz has now given his thoughts on his next move, with many expecting the German to complete a big-money switch away from Leverkusen in the near future.
Talking to Sky Germany, as reported by the Metro, Havertz said:
They haven’t scared me off. I don’t know exactly what it was like with Timo [Werner], but it just didn’t happen for me this year. I think there were a number of reasons why. But I’m happy to be here and stay in Leverkusen for another year. We’ll see what will happens next summer.
And these Arsenal fans were quick to hear of the youngster’s comments through @LTArsenal, with plenty of supporters excited at the prospect of potentially seeing the German make the move to the Emirates.
