Chelsea star Kai Havertz has admitted he wants to play as a central striker in the German national team with new German boss Hansi Flick set to take charge of his first games during the international break this August.

“I can take on that role,” Havertz told Bild when asked whether he could fulfil such a position in the national setup.

“I’ve already played as a central striker at Leverkusen, one time or another at Chelsea.

“I don’t yet know how Hansi Flick will line up. I like the position as a centre-forward in the box, in the penalty area, to push into the front aggressively, to score goals.

“That would be a position I would like. I’m really looking forward to the first course with Hansi Flick at the end of August and beginning of September. I don’t see any problem in the position.”
