Germany national coach Hansi Flick thinks he’s got the solution for the Blues boss’ Kai Havertz headache, with regards to the best position to get the best out of the Chelsea forward.
Although the 22-year-old attacker usually plays as a No10, Tuchel’s also started him as a No9, a half striker and a winger.
However, Flick reckons Havertz will flourish in the centre, which is an idea he’s shared with Tuchel before.
While speaking to SportBild, Flick said: “I exchanged ideas with Thomas Tuchel. I can well imagine that he can also play in the centre.”
The Blues boss previously revealed that he likes Havertz to be high up the pitch where he can use his speed to drive at defences and be clinical in front of goal.
He said: “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.”
Havertz has had a slow start at Stamford Bridge since joining for a whopping £71m from Bayer Leverkusen last summer.
He only managed to scrape together five goals in 30 Premier League appearances during his debut season.
