Arsenal signed Kai Havertz from Chelsea this summer for a fee of £65million, however the German has failed to hit the ground running since making the move to North London. The German has spoken to the Arsenal media team over the current International break where he spoke about what he needs from Arsenal fans in order to succeed in North London.

Kai Havertz explains he needs to feel the trust from the Arsenal fanbase, but he understands that will come from scoring goals and having good performances.

Kai Havertz: “It’s very important to feel trust from the fans. It’s always tough when you come from Chelsea, because they are big rivals, so it can take weeks to get some trust from the fans.

“But goals and good games can help me to get it and I will always give 100 per cent in the games and training sessions. I think they will recognise this as well, which is very important. I’m really happy to be here.”

The 24-year-old has so far only scored one goal for the Gunners which came from the penalty spot against Bournemouth earlier this season. He knows he needs to add more to his game to win the fans over, but there’s no doubt his recent performances against Manchester City, Sevilla and Chelsea have been a lot more positive as he continues to find his feet at his new club.

Kai Havertz speaking on what he thought about Arsenal before joining the club: “From outside, Arsenal always looked like a family. That’s the feeling I got when playing. And when I joined, that was exactly what it was like, and the staff are really nice too – and that makes life easier for a new player.

“From the first minute that I spoke to Mikel about joining Arsenal, I had this feeling that he respects all of us very much, so that was also a big part of me joining the club. I just felt the togetherness of the club from the players and especially within the fans and the whole club.

“At the training ground it’s like a big family – and this is a big factor to achieve great things.”

Kai Havertz also revealed he spoke to Declan Rice before both players had formally signed for the club: “Before I joined, I spoke a lot with Declan Rice as well, who I know through Mason Mount.

“For me it was very easy to come into the team because there are so many young players. I’ve played against a lot of them already so I know them from the pitch, and I have found it easy to make friends here. Hopefully it will continue like this.”
