Arsenal have taken their pursuit of Chelsea’s German international, Kai Havertz, to another level with a new verbal offer worth £60million, according to the Daily Mail. The offer comprises a guaranteed £55million plus an additional £5m in bonuses. This comes after Chelsea rejected Arsenal’s initial offer of around £50million last week.
Arsenal has been in talks with Chelsea over Havertz’s transfer, and discussions have intensified over the weekend. The Gunners are eager to finalize the deal swiftly and have already agreed on personal terms with the player. Havertz will be offered a long-term contract worth a minimum of £210,000-per-week.
However, the ball is now in Chelsea’s court, as they are yet to decide whether to sell Havertz for £60m. The Blues value the forward between £70m-£75m, which means Arsenal will have to improve their offer to meet Chelsea’s valuation.
Havertz’s desire to join Arsenal remains evident as he has already given the go-ahead, provided both clubs can agree on a deal for his departure. Arsenal’s bid for Havertz shows their determination to strengthen their squad ahead of the new season.
In conclusion, the transfer saga of Kai Havertz between Arsenal and Chelsea continues, with Arsenal making an improved offer. Only time will tell if Chelsea will accept the new offer or if Arsenal will have to increase their bid to secure the services of the talented German forward.
