EPL: He’s not consistent – William Gallas insists Arsenal summer signing will flop

Former Arsenal defender, William Gallas has insisted that the club’s £65 million summer signing Kai Havertz will flop at the Gunners following his move from Chelsea.

Havertz recently joined Chelsea from Arsenal this summer transfer window on a five-year deal.

The German won the UEFA Champions League with Chelsea but largely flattered to deceive, scoring 19 goals in 91 league appearances for the Blues.

Asked if he believes Havertz will flourish at Arsenal, Gallas told Gambling Zone that the forward is not consistent.

The former France international said: “No, I don’t think so. I don’t believe Havertz was a player that Arsenal needed to sign this summer.

“For me, even when he was at Chelsea, he was never consistent enough. He scored some important goals for the club, and he played well in flashes.

“He did not put in enough good performances during his Chelsea career in my opinion. When I saw Arsenal were signing him, I didn’t really understand it. I was surprised that they signed him.”
