ARSENAL are interested in signing Chelsea star Kai Havertz, according to reports.
The forward has been linked with a transfer this summer as he only has two years remaining on his contract.
Real Madrid are reportedly eyeing Havertz and it is believed the German would be open to a move.
But Arsenal are also monitoring his situation according to The Telegraph.
However potential suitors have reportedly been put off by Chelsea's £70million asking price.
But they could be forced to reduce their valuation with Arsenal said to be unwilling to pay more than £50million.

Havertz, 23, has shown no desire to extend his Chelsea contract too, which means this summer could be the club's last chance to cash in big.
And Chelsea are reportedly keen to sell players with two or less years remaining on their contracts to avoid losing stars on free transfers.
That explains the potential departures of Mason Mount, who has been linked to Manchester United, and Mateo Kovacic.
Chelsea could be set to let Ruben Loftus-Cheek leave for £15million, but are waiting for confirmation from AC Milan after they sacked technical director Paolo Maldini and sporting director Frederic Massara.
