Chelsea News | After leading Chelsea to Champions League victory, Thomas Tuchel is eager to add to his squad in the summer transfer window, with the German coach hoping to make “two or three” acquisitions.
Frank Lampard was able to sign Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz, and Edouard Mendy after Roman Abramovich financed a lavish shopping binge in 2020.
This time around, funds will be distributed a little thinner, but the goal is to get more people on board like those at Stamford Bridge to look to build on a strong season that saw them finish in the top four of the Premier League and win European glory.
Tuchel told reporters about his recruiting ambitions that he hopes to pursue several targets. He said, “Two or three of them might be fantastic. Never deny change is a continual phenomenon. I believe it’s a positive thing that you always introduce fresh energy, new individuals who question old notions. And challenge everyone in training and matches.”
The Blues have been connected with several elite attackers around Europe.
Despite their domestic and European success in 2020-21, Chelsea only had three players that had hit double digits in goals.
Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud are ready to leave this summer. The two are finding regular playing time difficult to come by.
With Werner’s predatory instincts waning, more firepower is being sought. Tottenham star Harry Kane, Borussia Dortmund teenager Erling Haaland, and former Blues player Romelu Lukaku – have been flourishing at Inter. All are being mentioned.
Declan Rice of West Ham has long been a goal in west London. He might be sought again this summer. Tuchel has been linked with a move to PSG, with Brazilian defender Marquinhos among those in his sights.
