Tottenham transfer news: 4 Chelsea players Thomas Tuchel could sign if he joins Spurs | Football | Sport


Despite his Chelsea connections, Thomas Tuchel is anticipated to be certainly one of the leading candidates for the Tottenham job should Antonio Conte fail to sign a latest contract or Spurs want to part company with the Italian. Pressure on the previous Stamford Bridge boss is now mounting following the 2-0 north London derby defeat to Arsenal and with a latest deal still not agreed, there is a sense Conte’s time on the club may very well be coming to an end. Express Sport assesses 4 Chelsea players Tuchel could hypothetically seek to sign at Spurs, if he was to land the job.

Edouard Mendy

This deal makes perfect sense given Hugo Lloris’ ongoing struggles at Tottenham.

The Frenchman flapped in one other goal on Sunday when directing Bukayo Saka’s tame effort into the web for Arsenal’s opener.

Tottenham fans are actually sick of Lloris’ inconsistency and calamitous nature and the time has come to finally sign an upgrade on their captain, who has given a lot to the club.

Mendy has also been out of favour at Chelsea in patches this season following the unlikely revival of Kepa Arrizabalaga in west London.

The Senegal international was Tuchel’s Champions League-winning No 1, so a reunion could be useful for all parties particularly as Mendy continues to stall on a latest Chelsea contract.

Hakim Ziyech

Ziyech could prove to be one other smart pickup for Tottenham simply to bolster their options in reserve in attack.

The Moroccan has been out and in of the Chelsea side this season (mostly out) but has began to receive more opportunities since his heroics on the World Cup in Qatar.

Tuchel did get the perfect from Ziyech in a Chelsea shirt even though it was only in patches but still, there’s loads of quality in his locker and he has more to offer before saying goodbye to the Premier League.

Former Spurs attacking midfielder Rafael van der Vaart has already urged Spurs to maneuver for Ziyech up to now, claiming he could help them win the Premier League.

He said on Dutch TV channel Ziggo Sport in early November: “Hakim Ziyech has to affix Tottenham,” said Van der Vaart. If Spurs get Hakim Ziyech, they may win the Premier League. I’m serious.”

Chelsea could be expected to entertain offers for Ziyech, who hasn’t lived as much as expectations since arriving at Stamford Bridge from Ajax in 2020.

N’Golo Kante

Kante is out of contract at the tip of the season and as things stand, he shall be departing when his current deal expires.

Tottenham are believed to be admirers as a consequence of Conte’s history working with the Frenchman.

The pair won the Premier League and FA Cup during their time working together at Chelsea but Tuchel also had great success with the central midfielder after lifting the Champions League in 2020.

Kante’s availability makes him the most effective options available on the market despite his ongoing injury struggles.

Tottenham could do far worse than picking up a player of his quality and with the player reportedly keen on remaining in England, this may very well be an excellent move for Spurs – regardless if Tuchel lands the role.

Trevoh Chalobah

It’s unclear whether Graham Potter would take heed to offers for Chalobah but when all of Chelsea’s defenders are fit – he appears to be sacrificed from the starting XI.

Tuchel was the one who thrust Chalobah into the Chelsea first team and the centre-back hasn’t looked back since, featuring frequently for the Blues.

He could be an incredible fit for Tottenham’s 3-4-3 formation as he could slot in on the suitable side of their three-man defence.

His ball-playing ability and general comfortability in a three-man defence makes him a really helpful asset.

Chelsea appear to be stacked with defensive options so if Tottenham were to present a wise proposal, there’s every probability it may very well be accepted at the tip of the campaign although Chalobah is currently having fun with a run within the side.
