A busy summer transfer window as Chelsea and head coach Thomas Tuchel, are trying to bolster their squad in the race for the Premier League title ambitions ahead of next season.
The celebrations from Saturday evening’s UEFA Champions League final triumph over Manchester City have barely died down and already Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel is putting plans in place ahead of the start of next season.
Tuchel has been a revelation since arriving at Stamford Bridge following Frank Lampard’s departure in January – with the German inheriting the former manager’s squad.
The upcoming summer transfer window is the Chelsea boss’ first real chance to put his own stamp on the squad – who have been superb for him so far in his reign in west London.
Now the task at hand for Tuchel is fine-tuning his European champions as he aims to launch a legitimate challenge on multiple fronts next season.
According to a report by the Telegraph, Tuchel has informed Blues owner Roman Abramovich that he wants to add three new faces to his squad this summer, as he looks to try and take the club to the next level.
They don’t need many additions, but smart recruitment will shape the club’s destiny in 2021/22; a wing-back, center midfielder, and striker are said to be on his shopping list.
Erling Haaland is the top priority of most European clubs. The West London side is also keen to lure in the Norwegian striker to Stamford Bridge.
Thomas Tuchel is also looking to sign a goalkeeper in the summer. The west London side’s interest in Gianluigi Donnarumma has been solid for a while now. The Blues are also targeting Bayern Munich defender Niklas Sule. The center-back’s contract expires at the end of next season. And Thomas Tuchel feels that signing the German will help reinforce their defence.
