Blessed with skills, clear movement around the penalty box, an eye for goal and assist, the midfielder could be trusted to lead the line with assurance and purpose starting this weekend.

Last season on the way to winning the UEFA champions league trophy, Kai Havertz often played in the false nine position pushing Timo Werner to play wide.

Kai Havertz delivered in a false nine position in the UEFA champions league finals last season.

In fact Kai Havertz have played 24 times as either a centre forward or false nine, scoring 13 goals and providing 2 assists that is 110 minutes per goal and assist.
