Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has admitted he’s a huge fan of Chelsea star Kai Havertz.

Havertz joined Chelsea last summer in a £71million transfer deal from Bayer Leverkusen, where he had thrived, scoring 46 goals in 150 matches.

He initially struggled to make an impact at Stamford Bridge but his form improved under Thomas Tuchel.

The German international scored the winner as Chelsea beat Manchester City in the Champions League final last week.

“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.”
