Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel believes that he will be content irrespective of what happens during the rest of the transfer window. The Blues are linked heavily with Anthony Gordon and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Chelsea has been short on goals this Premier League season despite new signing Raheem Sterling starting off the season well. After Callum Hudson-Odoi completed his loan move to Bayer Leverkusen, Tuchel wants 100 percent commitment from players staying at the club.
“Right now, we could need some more players in some positions. But it’s very close to the end of the transfer window and when the first of September comes, I will be a happy coach no matter what happens, and I will try to find solutions, not think about what could have happened,” Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel said. “Everything that matters in reality… In Southampton, we will find a way to win, step up individually, and push the team from my side. This is what we will do whether players come in or not. Without tough decisions, we will not get anywhere. We are used to competing for titles, we are used to competing at the highest level. If we don’t have tough decisions, it will simply not happen.”
“It’s maybe human if there is a transfer window and they are not only with us at Cobham, so once they leave the building, they will have their phone on and they will get calls,” he added. “They will think about their futures, their next steps and there is a World Cup coming, which everybody talks about and thinks about. I’m very happy when the transfer window is over because then we have different leverage to push players and the commitment has to be here 100 percent. We will not accept 99. But the reality is that sometimes in the last few days of the transfer window you have to accept it no matter what you wish for.”
