Arsenal are reportedly on the brink of securing a significant transfer coup with the signing of Chelsea forward Kai Havertz.

As reported by journalist Florian Plettenberg, the Gunners are closing in on a deal for the German international, with a transfer fee of around €80m (£68.42m) being discussed.

Havertz, who had a relatively quiet season at Chelsea, scoring just nine goals in 47 appearances, was initially expected to stay at Stamford Bridge for another season. However, a surprise enquiry from Real Madrid sparked a series of events that now seem to have him set for a move across London.

Despite interest from Real Madrid, the La Liga giants were reportedly unwilling to pay over £50m, including add-ons. Arsenal, however, have shown a willingness to negotiate a higher fee. Arsenal’s manager, Mikel Arteta, is said to be keen on adding Havertz to his squad, seeing him as a valuable addition to their attacking options alongside Gabriel Jesus.
