Thomas Tuchel has revealed he is intended to use Kai Havertz a striker at Chelsea amid Erling Haaland links.
The Borussia Dortmund sensation has been beyond impressive this season and therefore, has attracted interest from many big-name clubs, including Chelsea.
Meanwhile, Havertz wasted a number of clear cut chances in the 0-0 draw at Leeds United on Saturday, a result which affects the Blues’ hopes of a top-four finish.
However, Tuchel believes the German is best served as a central striker, as he said after the game:
“I feel Kai is very comfortable in high positions to drop into half spaces from the high positions to turn and drive with the ball and use his speed.
“But he also arrives very naturally in the box to finish our attacks. He is comfortable in finishing.
“He can play as a No.9, as a half striker or a winger. Today we used him as a No.9. I am happy, unfortunately he could not finish like he finishes in training or his talent allows him to finish. I trust him in this position.”
