2 players that Arsenal should consider as Aaron Ramsey replacement

Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey will leave Arsenal next summer to join Juventus on free deal.

So what’s next for Arsenal?

How’s Unai Emery going to find an appropriate player for Ramsey’s position?

Here are 3 players that can fit with the tactics of Arsenal manager and made the team stronger.

Kai Havertz (Bayer Leverkusen)

19 years old, estimated transfer value – 49.50 m (last updated 22 October 2018)

Here is an expensive solution. Kai Havertz is now one of the most talented players of Germany.

He has already appeared 63 times being only 19-years-old. Bayer Leverkusen will surely demand more than Kai’s estimated price mentioned above. However, Arsenal can place a bid and take a long-run solution for the midfield.

According to statistics, Havertz is good either in defending or in attacking. He can be the best solution in terms of counter-attacking play. Currently Arsenal dominates against non-top teams, but Unai Emery will surely have problems against big clubs like Manchester City, Chelsea or Liverpool.

Havertz passes 39.4 times/game with 86.9 % success rate. Also German youngster can dribble and shoot from distance. He has 1.1 key passes per game and 2.9 shots per game.

This means he can either run for a counter-attack himself or cut the lines of opponent with his passes. Usually, Kai uses long balls 3.7 times per match with 91 % success rate. This could be an incredible weapon in the hands of Unai Emery. Also, Havertz is good in aerial duels. In Bundesliga and Europa League he usually participates in 3.2 aerial duels per match with almost 50% success rate. This means he can help during corners and crosses.

Arsenal have already been interested in this player. Gunners former head of recruitment Sven Mislintat wanted to bring Havertz to London. Arsenal may pay more than 60 m, but instead Unai Emery will gain a long-term solution for Mesut Ozil’s position.
