Ally McCoist backs Arsenal’s move for Chelsea’s Champions League hero

Former Scotland player Ally McCoist has urged Arsenal to sign Chelsea forward Kai Havertz this summer.

He believes the German is perfect for Mikel Arteta’s style of football.

The Gunners’ desire to lure the Germany international to the Emirates this summer as the player has emerged as a top target for the north London side.

As they await the arrival of new manager Mauricio Pochettino on July 1, the Blues are open to letting Havertz leave the club this summer as they look to trim the squad.

McCoist said he had noted that the Blues have been playing Havertz out of position, which is the reason for the player’s downfall. 

“I’m telling you right now he’s been playing out of position, without a doubt, never a centre-forward. But I think he’s a top player, I really think he’s a top player as a number 10 or a midfielder.

“He’s no way an out-and-out center-forward for me. It does not surprise me that the clubs you’ve mentioned are in for him. He’s more forward-thinking; he’s a number 10 effectively. I like him, I really do.”
