Europa League finalists Arsenal have been dealt a major transfer blow following the news that one of their targets will stay at his German club.
Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz has been strongly linked with a summer move to Arsenal but the young midfielder is almost certain to remain at the Bay Arena next season.
Club manager Peter Bosz confirmed in his recent interview that Kai Havertz will stay at the club beyond this summer.
In a chat with the official TV of Bayer Leverkusen, Bayer 04 TV, Peter Bosz revealed that Havertz will stay at the club next season while he was less convinced about the future of Julian Brandt.
