William Gallas gives honest verdict on Kai Havertz, he insists the 60m summer signing needs to shape up fast or face life on the bench.

Havertz, who joined Mikel Arteta’s team from Chelsea in the last transfer window, has encountered challenges in finding his footing at the Emirates thus far.

the 24-year-old has only scored once and assist once in the premier league so far.  William Gallas has been left distinctly unimpressed with his contribution to Arsenal’s title push.

The Frenchman said, as quoted by The mirror:

“I’m not impressed with Kai Havertz so far,’ the former Arsenal skipper said. “He’s done nothing since he joined Arsenal. He may have scored, but that was only because Martin Odegaard let him take a penalty!

“Havertz hasn’t done anything yet, and I think he’s in trouble.

“I don’t think Arsenal should have signed Kai Havertz. I think that was a mistake. If you spent £60million on a striker, you expect them to score at least 15 goals in a season! I don’t think that’ll happen.

“Arsenal don’t have time! The season may be long, but clubs need results straight away. Havertz was at Chelsea for three years and knows the Premier League well. It may take a while to settle into a new team, but he already lived in London! Players need to adapt immediately – they don’t have time.”
