Didi Hamann reveals player Arsenal must replace if they want to win EPL title


Former Liverpool and Bayern Munich midfielder, Didi Hamann has revealed that Arsenal need to sign a new striker to replace Kai Havertz if they want to win the Premier League title.

Recall that Arsenal failed to win the Premier League title in the last two seasons as they ended up finishing second position behind champions Manchester City.

The Gunners signed Havertz from Chelsea for a £65mllion transfer.

The Germany international contributed to the Gunners’ title challenge, scoring 13 goals and providing seven assists in the Premier League.

However, Hamann believes the 25-year-old is not a centre forward and must be upgraded if Mikel Arteta’s side are serious about winning the Premier League title.

“Kai Havertz had a decent end to his season with Arsenal,” Hamann said on In The Zone’ podcast.

Even though he scored a few goals for Germany now, I just think he’s capable of so much more. But he is not a centre forward and I don’t think he wants to play as a centre forward.

“He has to nail it down, because he’s playing wherever Arsenal or Germany need him, and he plays there.

“If Arsenal bring in a centre forward, which they probably have to if they want to win the league, it will be very interesting to see where Havertz plays or if he plays.”
