Arsenal’s coach, Mikel Arteta, has clarified that the decision to recruit Kai Havertz was a collective one.

During a media briefing, Arteta emphasized that the choice was made in conjunction with the sporting director, Edu, and other key figures at the club.

“Our alignment with the club’s vision was strong, and in terms of the sports aspect, we presented a suggestion.

“Numerous individuals were involved in the process, and securing support from the ownership was crucial for the deal to materialize.”
