Kai Havertz spent three years at Chelsea, but was never really seen as a top-class player even though he scored in the Champions League final to give Chelsea the trophy.

The German was sold to Arsenal last summer, and Blues fans were happy to get back £60m for the forward.

Kai Havertz, who started the season slowly with Arsenal, has been widely praised of late for his performances.

Havertz has scored 12 goals and made six assists across 35 top-flight games this term.

In an interview with Chinese streaming service iQIYI, Havertz was asked to pick out which of his former teammates he would like to see move to Arsenal. Interestingly, he didn’t rate any.

“I don’t even know, I think we have everyone here,” Havertz said. “I’m happy with the squad.”

Quizzed specifically if he would want Arsenal to sign Joao Felix, Havertz added: “He’s an amazing player, a quality player for sure. But yeah, I have to say that I’m happy with the squad.”

Speaking after Arsenal’s latest match against Bournemouth, Kai Havertz hailed Arsenal star Bukayo Saka – and made a huge claim – suggesting he rates the Arsenal star higher than anyone he played with at Chelsea.

“He’s unbelievable and shows it every week,” Havertz said about his Arsenal teammate Saka.

“I think he’s 21 or 22 and I’ve never seen a player like this.

“England are very lucky. He’s hungry every day and if you see him in training he’s special.”
