Arsenal legend Paul Merson has compared Chelsea playmaker Kai Havertz to Gunners outcast Mesut Ozil.

The German has struggled for form since his £70million move from Bayer Leverkusen this summer.

Merson told Daily Star: “Kai Havertz looks like Mesut Ozil at the moment. A major talent, but when he loses the ball, he doesn’t try to win it back.

“Ozil used to get major stick because he didn’t always seem interested. But Havertz looks like that sometimes now as well.

“He looks like he’s out of his depth or doesn’t really want to be here. But you have to remember this is a young player who’s come to a different country.

“I think he’s struggling at the moment and he needs to come off the bench for a few games against tiring teams, get his confidence back.”
