Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has hailed new Chelsea signing Kai Havertz for his versatility ahead of a potential debut against Brighton on Monday.
According to Lampard, Havertz’s versatility means he can play as a No.8 arriving in the box, on the wing, or as a false No.9.
Lampard said: “Havertz brings a great versatility for us, he started as a No.8 arriving in the box, sometimes plays on the wing, can play as a false No.9.
“He’s very comfortable and happy to play in all those positions.
“Being able to bring players like him and Timo Werner into the squad brings us a lot more energy and speed into the team which is something we always want at the top level because those players make the difference.”
