Departing Chelsea starlet Kai Havertz is seen as a Granit Xhaka replacement at Arsenal.
The German is set to swap London clubs after the two parties agreed on a fee.
Many Arsenal fans are confused as to the club’s pursuit of Havertz, given their present attacking options.
However, The Athletic states that Gunners boss Mikel Arteta sees Havertz as a no.8.
He will play alongside a defensive midfielder and Martin Odegaard in a three man midfield.
Arsenal are being linked with Declan Rice, who appears Arteta’s ideal candidate for the base of his midfield.
