Thomas Tuchel drops Chelsea transfer hint after unconvincing open day Everton win | Football | Sport


Thomas Tuchel refused to rule out more activity in the summertime transfer window, despite Chelsea’s seemingly limitless spending.

The Blues have splashed out lavishly on the likes of Kalidou Koulibaly and Raheem Sterling, before sealing a deal value north of £60million for Brighton’s Marc Cucurella within the last 48 hours.

Yet the Blues began the Premier League campaign in fairly unconvincing fashion, with only a Jorginho spot kick the difference in a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Everton and club icon Frank Lampard.

After the match Tuchel was quizzed on whether he would proceed so as to add to his ranks.

Under the brand new regime of owner Todd Boehly, Chelsea have shown every sign that they’re willing to spend big, with the latets reports hotly tipping an £80m swoop for Leicester’s Wesley Fofana.

Adressing the subject of more incomings, Tuchel told said in his post-match press conference: “If we are able to add, we are going to add. Possibly not necessarily midfielders as a primary option but we’re open for all the things.

“I hope to make use of recent energy and fresh input to take us to a recent level.

“I believe we could use some more input and a few more quality.”

In recent days the west London outfit have also been connected with a shock move for former Arsenal ace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has thrived since joining Barcelona but faces an uncertain future with the club’s funds still in disarray.

Barca have secured the arrival of Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich, in addition to tying down the long run way forward for French ace Ousmane Dembele.

Aubameyang has due to this fact emerged as a possible successor to Romelu Lukaku, who Chelsea permitted to return to Inter Milan this summer on a lucrative loan agreement.
