Chelsea confirmed the signing of German international Kai Havertz last week after months of negotiations with Bayer Leverkusen.

Frank Lampard finally got his man in a signing that has a similar feel to when Chelsea signed world class talent Eden Hazard.

Of course, Havertz and Hazard are different players entirely, but Lampard and Chelsea fans will be hoping that the 21-year old will have a similar impact in attack as Hazard did during his Blues career.

There is no doubt that Chelsea have landed a top quality talent, one that is also very versatile.

So they question is, where will he mainly be playing for Chelsea?

Well, he can play in a number of positions, and we are likely to see him rotate between roles. But Lampard has dropped a couple of strong hints that Havertz could feature in the 10 role, or wide for Chelsea having played there a lot in recent years.

Lampard said: “Kai can probably start in more forward areas than I started in. I liked to come from deep as a midfield player, and a lot of Kai’s really good play in the last few seasons as he has broken through at Leverkusen has been in a slightly advanced no.10 role, or slightly wider areas or more in a striker kind of area of late.

“So I think there are differences in our game and styles but in terms of what we try to bring to the team, it is pretty similar in terms of productivity in goals and assists.

“Michael Ballack was a a good player for us in terms of what he contributed and we have all got really good memories of Bally when he was at the club and what he did for us, but Kai is going to be his own player and his own person.

“He has his own style and he is very unique in terms of that, which really excites me to work with him, in terms of him going forward.”
