Kai Havertz appears to be a man in extreme demand.

According to Sport1, cited by This Is Anfield, the Bayer Leverkusen star is wanted by up to eight European giants next summer, one of which is Arsenal.

Premier League rivals Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United are also keen on the creative midfielder, while Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Real Madrid make up the final three sides showing an interest in the German.

The 20-year-old has been tipped by many as the next big attacking star across Europe and has already started the Bundesliga season in fine form.

And these Arsenal fans were quick to reply to the rumours linking the youngster with a move to the Emirates.

If Arsenal can somehow fend off the interest of seven other interested parties to secure the services of Havertz next summer, it could possibly turn out to be the club’s greatest signing of all-time.

The athletic two-footed midfielder has shown great maturity in recent years, with many still forgetting he’s still just 20. He’s technically excellent and could prove to be the perfect man to play in behind the formidable front three of Nicolas Pepe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.

Havertz is already a top-level talent, so winning the race for his signature would certainly be a real statement of intent going forward.

Do Arsenal have a realistic chance of landing Havertz next summer?
