Chelsea player, Kai Havertz “certainly doesn’t feel comfortable” in his current role at Chelsea, according to Klaus Fischer.
Havertz, 22, joined the Blues in a club-record £72million transfer last year and began to fulfil his vast potential during the latter stage of the season.
The forward’s performances improved noticeably after Thomas Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard in January, with the German manager frequently deploying his compatriot as a false nine.
Havertz capped his fine end to the season by scoring the winner in the Champions League final against Manchester City last month.
He was deployed in a fluid attacking role in the match and latched onto Mason Mount’s through-ball to put the Blues ahead.
But former West Germany forward Klaus Fischer insists Havertz is not most effective when operating up front.
Speaking in association with NetBet, Fischer told Goal: “I saw him in the Champions League final against Manchester City and he played brilliantly.
“He’s a young player who has a great left foot, but he’s not a real centre-forward, that’s clear to see.
