Tuchel reacts after being asked about possible £90 milliom Chelsea signing
Thomas Tuchel has reacted to the reports that Chelsea are keen to try and sign Erling Haaland in the transfer window.
Haaland hit a brace in the second leg of Dortmund’s Champions League round of 16 tie against Sevilla last week, which sent them through to the last eight, 5-4 on aggregate, as the Norwegian now has ten goals to his name from six outings in the competition, four ahead of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar
His performances for Dortmund this season has let to alot of speculation that we are ready to swoop in and try to offer him a move to the Premier League, with both keen to add a striker to the squad in the transfer window, BUT Tuchel is in no need to talk transfer right now.
“It is not time to reflect for the summer and other solutions, other than what we have,” Tuchel said about the transfer market. “We have guys that we are happy with and are looking for more solutions; we will try to help them.
“In general, I am happy because we don’t only look at the output in how they score and assist. Of course, this is a statistic in which every striker is attached to and everyone has to have the mentality to cope with the statistic. It is like this at high-level football.
“We are still waiting for a breakthrough for the guys to be on a run to score consistently, it is not the case. We will never stop pushing and looking for solutions to create even more clear chances for them. That’s the way it is.”
He may not want to talk about it, But Haaland would be the superstar striker that Chelsea are currently lacking right?
