Same here. I thought he was more midfielder than forward the few times I watched Leverkusen, he didn't really show any qualities that made me think of him as a forward option for us.Havertz always gets touted as a midfielder but he played centre forward against Eintracht Frankfurt a few days ago and was exceptional. He's also played on the right for Leverkusen a fair bit.
I didn't realise how quick he was until I saw him the other day. He's rapid. He has it all to be a top forward as well as a top midfielder, and for that reason I would make him a target ahead of almost anybody else.
Lately though, he has played more in behind the defence than I've seen him do before, and showed he has some pace as well. For me that's been an eye-opener, and makes him much more interesting as a potential signing. When you add pace and intelligent running to his other qualities, it looks like a no-brainer if it can be done.
