Arsenal sign Havertz from Chelsea for £65m

Arsenal have completed a £65m deal to sign Kai Havertz from Chelsea on an unspecified long-term contract.

The German forward becomes Arsenal's first summer signing with the Gunners also targeting deals for West Ham midfielder Declan Rice, for whom they had a £105m bid accepted on Wednesday, and Ajax defender Jurrien Timber.

Havertz has signed a long-term contract at the Emirates to spell the end of a three-season stint at Chelsea.

The 24-year-old secured his place in Blues history by scoring the goal that won them a second Champions League crown in 2021.

Chelsea signed Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen in 2020 for £75m but were looking to recoup a substantial portion of what they paid after an indifferent last campaign at Stamford Bridge.
