Reality check - I had never heard of Kai Havertz until 3 weeks ago - seemingly on the basis of 1 good game in the recently resumed Bundesliga everyone is now saying this 20 year old is a superstar and would be a great buy! And I am still confused about where he plays: some say 'winger', some say 'AM' - if we do complete Timo Werner, do we need either another winger or AM?

Just a few weeks ago, we were all excited about us targetting Sancho / Dembele / Dries Mertens / Aubamayang / and even Zaha.

Come on - be honest - how many of you had heard of Kai Havertz a month ago?!

{Ed002's Note - Everyone else - he has been of interest all season and I explained at Christmas that the issue was his price. Maybe you should try the search engine.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed002, I doubt that - it will be interesting to see how many posters had Havertz in their thoughts a month ago (if they're honest) .

{Ed002's Note - Why not try the search engine. I think it is just you who doesn't take notes of the posts.}

I have been a reader for a few years now and have never posted until now.

Havertz has been on my radar for around 18months, in all honesty, I knew of him before I knew Sancho or Werner.

Eds need to be treated with more respect, they only contribute to this site for our benefit.

Why waste their time asking questions if your not going to believe or appreciate their answers?

Ive known about Havertz for at least 3/ 4 Years as will the majority of fans across Europe. Werner, Ziyech and Havertz all very versatile and can adapt in-game which we have been lacking in recent times, on the bench you’d have Pulisic, Hudson-Odoi, Mount, RLC etc. I can’t think of a team in Europe that he wouldn’t walk into. Just my humble opinion.

10 Jun 2020 12:54:13
I have to admit I only looked at the player after the rumours of our interest surfaced. I’m not sure how long a fan or poster became aware of a player is in anyway relevant.

The Eds give their opinion an NO cost to us so and I’m sure the vast majority of fans appreciate their valuable insight.

I agree it’s not really important, I think it’s fair to say the club know far more about the player than any of us fans, so I will trust their judgment and I believe we can pull a deal off for him, maybe a player plus cash deal? Who knows.

Can only go back til 3rd Jan 2019, we were linked to Barrella, I said we should be getting havertz instead,

Havertz has been in the radar of most the posters and maybe not yours only Mrs Drogba. Then again I do follow European football quite keenly. His a top talent.

Exactly Ed002, most on here were aware of our interest in Harvertz since the last window (read the transfer updates Ed gave at the time) . I for one have known him as a player since he and Brandt were tearing it up for Leverkusen.

RTFP and stop the assumptions, it’s been a good couple of days on here with the positivity. It’s totally okay to stay grounded and not get into the transfer frenzy but don’t try and ridicule others because you have chosen to stay oblivious.

I wasn't questioning the Eds who I think do a great job. The point I was making is a positive one: the media link us to different players everyday so it's brilliant to see us competing for players who are sought after by all the top clubs.

Situation88, Havertz would have been 16 years old 4 years ago.

Eli, how have I 'ridiculed' anyone?

10 Jun 2020 16:33:24
Mrs Drogba, I watched the game he made he’s first appearance against Werder Bremen and have tracked he’s progress ever since.

We are only human it’s hard not to be excited by potential transfers and have many questions for the Ed’s, however many questions are repetitive and tedious!

We all appreciate the effort and time the Ed’s put in.

10 Jun 2020 16:46:26
By questioning our optimism in the club bringing in a player you assume we know nothing about, while conveying that we have previously been « excited » just a few weeks ago » when linked to other targets. Not to mention you claim for a second time that most of us hadn't heard of Harvertz a month ago thus saying our optimism and joy is misplaced.

It’s slight but yeah there is a hint of « ridiculing «  going on in your post.
