Kai Havertz himself is unsure of his position at Chelsea.
German playmaker Kai Havertz has played in multiple positions at Stamford Bride since his arrival from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2020.
He has been the most effective when he was deployed as one of the number 10s playing behind a lone striker which happened in his last game for the Blues.
Germany coach Hansi Flick spoke to Tuchel on how utilise Havertz in the midfield position.
‘I do believe that Kai can play in the centre,’ Flick told SportBILD. ‘I exchanged ideas with Thomas Tuchel. I can well imagine that he can also play in the centre.’
Tuchel himself said: ‘In my opinion, his best position is between the nine and the 10 and have the freedom to drop and move fluid between the two positions.
‘I like to have him in high positions, I don’t want to have him behind the ball and he feels comfortable in between the lines and in narrow pockets.’
Kai Havertz is unsure of his best position and says: ‘I play somewhere up front – number nine, number 10, something in between – to be honest, I don’t know 100%.’
