Arsenal Have Signed The Next Van Persie



Former Arsenal defender, Bacary Sagna believes Kai Havertz can prove to be the next Robin van Persie at the club.

Havertz joined the Gunners from London rivals Chelsea last month in a £65million deal.

The 24-year-old spent three years with the Blues, showing glimpses of his abilities, but has been criticised for a lack of goals and assists having been used in a variety of different positions under multiple managers.

But Sagna has expressed confidence in Havertz and compared him to Van Persie.

Speaking to Paddy Power, Sagna said:

“Kai Havertz played well in the number nine especially against big defenders. I was expecting him to suffer physically, but he’s a clever player.

“He’s like Robin van Persie in the way he uses his body, he can cross and he’s technically very good. He could have scored but he created lots of chances, which is a positive.”
