Kai Havertz compared with Arsenal legend Robin Van Persie

Kai Havertz is inching closer to joining Arsenal this summer.

The German playmaker has only two years left on his Chelsea contract and has been poised for an exit this summer.

Both Bayern Munich and Real Madrid pulled out of the race, but it is Arsenal who is willing to match his £250,000-a-week wages.

Chelsea demands £70million for the forward but the price tag is expected to drop by a significant amount.

Havertz has been backed by former Arsenal legend Thierry Henry and compared him to former Gunners captain Robin van Persie.

“He reminds me sometimes, a little, of Robin back to goal the way he can hold the ball,” Henry told CBS Sports.

“Robin van Persie was very good with his left foot, the touch was always immaculate and he tried to bring people along.

“This is why out of the guys that used to be wingers or No.10 he plays as a nine because with his back to goal he can hold the ball well. Now he needs to make sure he can transform that into more goals because you can play off him.”
