Chelsea news includes comments from Kai Havertz on his new position under head coach Thomas Tuchel, who claims that the 21-year-form olds has improved after the managerial shift.

Kai Havertz has admitted something that may have an effect on Chelsea's summer transfer plans.

The German international arrived at Stamford Bridge for a large fee just under a year ago, and after a slow start to life in England, he has recently begun to show signs of his quality.


Interestingly, Havertz's development has coincided with a change in manager as well as a shift in his place in the Chelsea squad.

Since Thomas Tuchel prefers a 3-4-2-1 formation, Havertz is now playing as a false 9 rather than the attacking midfielder he was during Frank Lampard's tenure as head coach.

And the 21-year-old is relishing the opportunity.

"I'd call it a false nine," he said to Sky Sports. "Unlike other strikers, I'm not the big guy in the center." I take a slightly different approach to the position.

"That's why it's great that we have so many quality players up front next to me, and it's really a pleasure to play with them."

"It's a good place for me, and I like it." I feel really at ease there.

"I always like to go into the spaces to get the ball there, and I also like to play up front near the target, which is also really good for me, so I think I like the role and it fits me."

Havertz scored and assisted another goal in a 4-1 victory over Crystal Palace last month, arguably one of his finest games for the Blues as a central striker.

He then followed that up with a brace in Fulham's 2-0 victory.

Those performances, combined with his admission to the role, could end up saving Chelsea millions of dollars during the summer transfer window.

It's no secret that the Blues are expected to sign a new striker this summer, with names such as Romelu Lukaku, Robert Lewandowski, and Erling Haaland being mentioned.

However, Marina Granovskaia could have already solved Tuchel's problem position at Chelsea by signing Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen in a £71 million contract last summer.
