“4 days to go”: Three world class players Thomas Tuchel could sign for Chelsea this January
According to reports, THOMAS TUCHEL has become the new Chelsea manager after owner Roman Abramovich sacked Frank Lampard on Monday morning.
However, The former PSG and Borussia Dortmund boss may decide to dip into the January transfer window before the end of the week. Here’s three players the new Chelsea boss could sign in the January window.
According to EXPRESS, Chelsea new boss Thomas Tuchel will be looking to add some players to his squad before the transfer window ends.
Below are some of the players that might be heading to Stamford Bridge.
Idrissa Gana Gueye: Tuchel signed Gueye for PSG from Everton, back in July 2019, for a reported £27million.
The holding midfielder was a firm favourite of the manager when he was in charge, and Chelsea fans have been desperate for a similar type of player.
The Blues have only got N’Golo Kante in the holding role, and will be looking to add some depth to the squad.
Gueye has also been on the periphery of the PSG team this season, and could be tempted by a move to the Premier League.
Declan Rice: West Ham’s Declan Rice has been linked with a move to Chelsea since the start of last summer.
The Blues have been monitoring his situation for a number of months, with former boss Lampard a particular fan of the England International.
Chelsea would have to spend big to secure Rice’s signature, and question marks remain over how much Tuchel will have to spend, given the summer’s vast transfer outlay.
West Ham are also keen to keep hold of Rice, and aren’t willing to let him go.
Dayot Upamecano: Chelsea allowed youngster Fikayo Tomori to leave the club on loan this month, meaning the Blues might be looking to fill the gap.
They’ve been linked with RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano for a number of months now, and may be interested in moving the process along before the end of the transfer window.
Chelsea have already reportedly made contact with Leipzig about a potential deal.
But, both Bayern Munich and Manchester United have also been tipped to make a move for the centre-back.
