Mikel Arteta hails Arsenal star

 Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has hailed Kai Havertz, insisting that the Germany international has become a real threat to opponents.

Arteta spoke ahead of Arsenal’s Premier League tie with Manchester City on Sunday evening.

Ahead of the huge clash, Arteta, who spoke to Sky Sports, believes Havertz will play a key role against Pep Guardiola’s side.

“He [Havertz] is a constant threat. He can threaten you from behind; he can come to good spaces and provoke a lot of issues positionally for the opponent,” the Spaniard said.

“And yeah, he has become a real threat in the opponent’s box as well because now he is scoring goals.”

Havertz joined Arsenal from Chelsea last year.
