Arsenal have signed Germany forward Kai Havertz from Chelsea for £65m.

The 24-year-old has signed a “long-term deal” at Emirates Stadium, three years after joining the Blues from Bayer Leverkusen for £71m.

The fee for Havertz, who scored nine goals for the Blues last season, could rise with add-ons.

Havertz has scored 19 goals in 91 Premier League appearances and hit the winner in the 2021 Champions League final against Manchester City.

He moves across London as Mikel Arteta looks to strengthen his Arsenal side following qualification for the Champions League after a six-year absence.

In a statement on his social media channelsexternal-link, Havertz said it was “with a heavy heart” that he was saying goodbye to Chelsea’s fans.

“A big thank you for all your support, we achieved a dream of winning the Champions League together,” he added.

Speaking on the Arsenal website after his transfer had been announced, Havertz said his aim was to “win trophies” with his new club.
