‘Tuchel has been a great admirer for two years,’ according to Chelsea, who are ‘considering’ signing a €80 million player following their acquisition.
If Chelsea’s new owners want to back manager Thomas Tuchel, they’ll have to put in a lot of effort this summer.
After another poor showing on the pitch against Everton this weekend, which summed up the club’s wildly erratic season, it is clear to me that this squad requires major improvement.
Is this something that will happen now that the new owners have taken control? Of course, at this moment, it is a question that cannot be addressed.
The team is still interested in Sevilla defender Jules Kounde, according to trade analyst Fabrizio Romano.
He believes Tuchel is a big fan of the defender and that he might be one of Tuchel’s summer objectives.
I feel we could get him for a lot less than the €80 million release clause that was mentioned this summer, and it’s always looked like a deal that was meant to be mine.
Chelsea are still considering Jules Koundé as one of the potential targets, he’s among 3/4 options on the CB list. Tuchel’s big fan of Koundé since two years. 🔵 #CFC
Sevilla always asked for €80m as release clause price – while Chelsea will lose both Rüdiger & Christensen.
