PIERS MORGAN has taken a savage swipe at Kai Havertz.
That’s after the £60million Arsenal forward picked up an unwanted stat just months into his Emirates career.
Havertz, 24, was signed by Mikel Arteta from Chelsea in June.
The German won the Champions League during his time at Stamford Bridge, scoring the winning goal in the 2021 final against Manchester City.
But Havertz’s Arsenal career has got off to a slow start.
He is yet to score or assist for the Gunners in all competitions.
And Havertz has now picked up an unwanted award — the dreaded ‘007’ tag.
The James Bond-themed moniker has become an inside joke among football fans.
It was first used to sum up Jadon Sancho’s first seven games at Manchester United when he failed to provide a single goal or assist.
Richarlison had the same issue when he joined Spurs last summer.

And numerous other players came close to taking the 007 title, including £88m Chelsea winger Mkyhailo Mudryk.
Liverpool’s Cody Gakpo also nearly picked up the moniker following his Anfield move in January.
But Havertz has now actually reached the milestone and will struggle to shake it off until he makes a meaningful impact with his new side.
Die-hard Arsenal fans Morgan was certainly unimpressed with the tag.
He wrote on Twitter: “Least lethal 007 ever.”
And fans quickly agreed with the TalkTV host.
One said: “He needs to start scoring now.”
Another declared: “He sets the record straight, 007.”
One noted: “How did Chelsea fans watch Havertz for three years?”
Another added: “In the real world you’d get sacked for that.”
