Arsene Wenger amazed by Kai Havertz's struggles at Chelsea

Kai Havertz endured a disappointing debut season at Chelsea.

The German playmaker joined the Blues in a £71million transfer deal from Bayer Leverkusen but struggled to make an impact at Stamford Bridge.

His goal in the Champions League final against Manchester City helped the club win their second European title.

Arsenal legend Arsene Wenger is a huge admirer of Kai Havertz and was shocked by his initial struggles at Chelsea.

‘I believe that Havertz was very disappointing at the start,’ the former Arsenal boss told beIN SPORTS. ‘I liked him and I was quite amazed how much trouble he had at the start to settle.

‘He adjusted, adapted, he came back, he suffered, he spent his period on the bench and came back again. To me, he is a very promising player. I would bet on him for the future.’

‘I like the quality of his runs,’ Wenger added. ‘I like his movement, but he’s not… we see his conversion rate with the number of chances he has.

‘He’s not good enough to say, but he will be absolutely the favourite to be the player of the tournament [Euro 2020].’
