Arsenal and Real Madrid transfers fall through as the European giants scramble for Chelsea star Kai Havertz

BAYERN MUNICH are trying to hijack Arsenal’s move to Chelsea’s Kai Havertz.

We reported yesterday how Gunners boss Mikel Arteta, who this week uncovered his side’s 2023/24 Premier League schedule, wasted no time in beefing up his squad.

With the added bonus of a Champions League return, the Spaniard is looking to land a number of reinforcements this summer after losing the title last season.

They want to pay a club a record £90m to sign West Ham midfielder Declan Rice.

We reported earlier this week that Chelsea’s Germany striker has also become a shock target.

Chelsea owner Todd Boehly isn’t ready to let him go on the cheap as Real Madrid are also in the running for his signing.

The Blues have imposed a £70m price tag on Havertz, who joined for around £62m three years ago.

Arsenal want to pay a lot less and were hoping the fact that Real Madrid aren’t willing to pay more than £50m would help them sign him for a reduced fee.

But although Havertz was revealed on Friday to be “very close to Arsenal”, a potential error was brought into play.

The Daily Mail have claimed that Bayern Munich have “expressed a late interest” in signing him.


Havertz made 47 appearances last season, scoring nine goals.

The former Leverkusen man is a fan favorite in west London due to his Champions League win over Manchester City in 2021.

And Havertz will remain at Stamford Bridge until 2025.

Chelsea are understood to be ready to offer Havertz a new contract but he would have to accept a cut of his £310,000-a-week.
