Footage of Kai Havertz’s first interview as an Arsenal player has been leaked on social media.

Arsenal are expected to confirm the signing of the German international imminently in a £65m deal from London rivals Chelsea.

The move itself hasn’t been formally announced as of yet but footage on social media has appeared of Havertz speaking to the Gunners for the first time.

In the clip, the 24-year-old also revealed the number he would wear, which is the number 29 – the same he has worn throughout his career.

During the interview, he said: “It’s super exciting for me personally. I’m so glad to join this amazing club.

“This club has such a big history and I hope we can achieve lots of things and I’m just looking forward to meeting all the players and the staff.

“It’s going to be exciting.”

Havertz added that he was also looking forward to experiencing the “family mentality” at the Emirates Stadium.

“I experienced it a couple of times myself, you can feel the family mentality that the team has on the pitch and I guess they have it off the pitch,” he continued.

“The team mentality in the squad is very, very high and you can feel that. I think that was one of the reasons it as so hard to play against Arsenal.

“They have so many talented players and big room to achieve big things.”

He could also be joined by Declan Rice, who is Mikel Arteta’s number one target, after Manchester City pulled out of the running following the Gunners’ £105m bid that was made on Tuesday night.
