EPL: He’s not consistent – William Gallas insists Arsenal summer signing will flop
Former Arsenal defender William Gallas has expressed doubt about the success of the club’s recent £65 million summer signing, Kai Havertz, who transferred from Chelsea to Arsenal. Gallas believes that Havertz will not thrive at the Gunners following his move from their London rivals.
While Havertz secured a UEFA Champions League title during his time with Chelsea, Gallas feels that the German forward has often failed to live up to expectations, pointing to his lack of consistency. Despite scoring 19 goals in 91 league appearances for Chelsea, Gallas believes Havertz’s performances were inconsistent and didn’t consistently meet the standards expected.
Gallas shared his perspective that Arsenal did not necessarily need to sign Havertz, expressing surprise at the decision to bring him to the club. He cited his own surprise when he learned of the signing, suggesting that there were other areas of the squad that might have required reinforcement instead.
This viewpoint from Gallas adds to the debate surrounding Havertz’s potential impact at Arsenal, and fans will be eager to see how the young German forward performs at his new club during the upcoming season.
