Arsenal forward Kai Havertz has unequivocally ruled out any desire to see his former Chelsea teammates don the Gunners’ jersey, asserting his contentment with the current squad.

Having departed Chelsea in June 2023 after a difficult three-year tenure that included a Champions League triumph in 2021, Havertz transferred across London to bolster Arsenal’s ranks as they chase Premier League glory.

Despite his past connections with notable players such as Reece James and Antonio Rudiger, Havertz adamantly rebuffed the notion of any Chelsea colleagues following his footsteps to Arsenal in a recent interview.

With his impressive performances earning plaudits throughout the season, Havertz has tallied an impressive 12 goals and six assists across 35 top-flight appearances.

During a conversation with Chinese streaming service iQIYI, Havertz was pressed to identify which of his former teammates he would endorse for a move to Arsenal. Dismissively, he remarked, “I don’t even know, I think we have everyone here. I’m happy with the squad.”

When specifically asked about the potential signing of Joao Felix, Kai Havertz acknowledged the Portuguese talent but reiterated his satisfaction with Arsenal’s current roster.

“He’s an amazing player, a quality player for sure. But yeah, I have to say that I’m happy with the squad.”


Havertz’s impact for Arsenal was evident in their recent 3-0 victory over AFC Bournemouth, where his adept play earned his side a crucial penalty in the first half. Reflecting on the match, Havertz praised his teammate Bukayo Saka, heralding the English winger’s exceptional talents and expressing a preference for Saka over any player he had previously played with at Chelsea.

“He’s unbelievable and shows it every week,” Havertz declared of Saka. “I think he’s 21 or 22 and I’ve never seen a player like this. England are very lucky. He’s hungry every day, and if you see him in training, he’s special.”
