Arteta must now “abandon experiment” with £65 million star at the Emirates, according to Arsenal.

This season, Arsenal needs to find Kai Havertz a suitable position at the Emirates Stadium.

Highlights.

  • According to journalist Paul Brown, Mikel Arteta of Arsenal should end his experiment with Kai Havertz and find him a permanent position on the team.
  • Since moving to Chelsea, Havertz has struggled to regain his Bayer Leverkusen form, but he did score the game-winning goal in the Champions League final.
  • The international player from Germany has previously stated what position he prefers to play.

Given that journalist Paul Brown tells GIVEMESPORT that the midfielder’s best position is in the holding role, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta must “abandon” his experiment with Kai Havertz at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners hope to once again put up a title challenge for Manchester City after an impressive start to the new Premier League season.

Kai Havertz is the subject of recent Arsenal news.

Arsenal’s decision to pay £65 million to acquire Chelsea attacker Havertz during the summer transfer window was the subject of much discussion.

Since moving from Bayer Leverkusen to Stamford Bridge for nearly £76 million in September 2020, the German international had hardly made a splash.

Having trouble settling in one position at west London, Havertz made 39 appearances and scored 32 goals and contributed 15 assists.

The 24-year-old was utilized as a lone center-forward, on both wings, and behind the striker. However, Havertz did contribute the game-winning goal as Chelsea defeated Manchester City 1-0 in the 2021 Champions League final, cementing his place in Blues lore.

The 37-cap Germany international, however, was unable to build on that success in the subsequent two campaigns and departs Stamford Bridge having fallen short of the high hopes placed in him upon his arrival.

Havertz, who hoped to regain his pre-Chelsea performance levels, has been given a fresh start with his transfer to Arsenal.

After playing a variety of roles in the Gunners’ first four games of the season, Brown recently told GIVEMESPORT that the attack-minded star may be uneasy at the Emirates.

Under the Spanish manager, the former Bundesliga star has primarily played in central midfield and attacking positions, which hasn’t given him much time to adapt to life in north London.

What has Brown said about Havertz and Arsenal?

When playing as an inverted forward or a false nine, which allowed him to drop deep and participate in play, Brown believes Havertz was at his best while playing for Chelsea.

“When he was at his best at Chelsea, he was always playing either slightly higher as an inverted forward or as a false nine dropping deep to get involved in the play,” the journalist told GIVEMESPORT.

He was good at putting things together, playing one-twos, and getting involved in deeper build-up plays by drawing out defenders. Starting from a more profound place, as he had been doing for Arteta over the previous few weeks, had not been successful.

Arteta may decide to give up on this experiment, but it will be interesting to see if he does so.

In my opinion, he is having some difficulty.”.

What has Havertz said about his preferred position?

Since his arrival at Chelsea, numerous head coaches have tried to maximize the performance of the attacker, and the best position for Havertz has long been a point of contention.

In a 2020 interview with Marca (via OneFootball), the Arsenal star discussed his ideal position in the team while still playing for Bayer Leverkusen.

“I’ve played in a lot of different positions, but I prefer to play in the center because I get more of the ball there.

I’ve always wanted to wear No. 10 on one occasion at my club.

I was inspired by many athletes, including Kaka, Zidane, and Ronaldinho.

They have consistently been my heroes.

Andres Iniesta is my favorite player among those from Spain.

On the ball, he is excellent.

Unique.

He is the person I like the most.

I take a lot of inspiration from Toni Kroos, who is a fantastic player.

He has had a fantastic journey. I have a great deal of respect for him.

His passing skills and combination play are exceptional.

He makes flawless passes during training for [Germany].

How they give it to him is irrelevant.”.

Will Havertz be cast in a role that suits Arteta?

It’s a question that was posed to the three managers before Arteta, and it will be posed until Havertz starts to resemble the form he displayed at Leverkusen.

Despite playing a variety of positions during his 150 games for Leverkusen, Havertz was frequently used as an attacking midfielder, scoring 46 goals and registering 31 assists before signing with Chelsea in 2020.

This would imply that if Arteta could rearrange his system and give Havertz some time to settle into a position behind the striker, the benefits could be substantial.

Having spent £65 million to sign the playmaker from their cross-city rivals, the pressure will be mounting on Arteta and Havertz to find a quick solution as the Gunners continue their title ascent.
