Kai Havertz adamant he's found 'perfect position' with Chelsea

Chelsea star Kai Havertz believes playing forward is the 'perfect position' for him.

The German has finally begun to settle at Stamford Bridge since his record breaking move from Bayer Leverkusen last summer.

Asked how he views his current role, Havertz told the club's official website: "To be honest, I don't know!"

"I play somewhere up front – number nine, number 10, something in between – to be honest, I don't know 100%.

"I just enjoy the position right now because I feel very good there. I have a lot of fast strikers next to me right now, so that's very nice and I think it's the perfect position for me.

"I can be dangerous in the box, I can have the ball a lot and that is what I like, so right now it's very nice for me in this position. 'I think the first year wasn't very easy for me but I think I'm getting better and better, getting more confidence.

"But, for me, the team effort was the most important thing this season, and that we get victories – that's more important than my own personal things.

"But, of course, I always want to play my best and I'm getting better now, so it feels good."
