‘We will ask that question’: Thomas Tuchel drops hint regarding Chelsea summer signings

Chelsea FC manager Thomas Tuchel has hinted that the club will want to strengthen their frontline during the summer transfer window.

This season, the Blues finished third in the Premier League table after failing to mount a title campaign and falling short in both the League Cup and FA Cup finals.

Chelsea were were knocked out of the Champions League in the quarter-finals by Real Madrid, leaving the German without a major prize in his first full season in command at Stamford Bridge.

After the season concludes, the focus at the south west London club will shift to the summer transfer window and the players the Blues may try to bring in to enhance their squad.

Chelsea FC are now prohibited to buy or sell players due to British government penalties, but it is believed that the proposed takeover agreement at Stamford Bridge will be completed soon.

Despite being unable to do any transfer business at the moment, the Blues are sure to be planning who they might bring in ahead of next season.

Tuchel has now hinted that the south west London club may aim to bring in some fresh attacking talent during the off-season.

Speaking in an interview quoted by The Guardian, Tuchel said: “If we stick to the group then we will try to solve it with these players.

“Is it necessary to bring more offensive players around the box to create more distractions, to create more space for each other? We will ask that question. Can we do better in the structure? Can we push the players more? Did we rotate too much? Let’s see.

“There are a lot of options. The numbers we produce from our offensive players don’t allow us to overperform and we need overperformance if we want to be nearer to the top two teams.

“I am not pointing fingers, I am not blaming anybody, but we need overperformance from everybody. It’s not overperformance if we have only single figures in scoring and assisting.”

Reflecting on Chelsea FC’s current predicament when it comes to the transfer window, Tuchel added: “We are late because other clubs can take players.

“Other clubs have ideas and know what quality they want. Other clubs don’t want to lose their players. We are a bit behind. But we will try to have our impact. We have a strong opinion on what we need.”

“We have to be fast and smart as soon as the sanctions are lifted. There are good signs and there is progression but actually nothing changes. We are not able to sign our players, speak to our players, and we are not able to sell players or contact players. There’s a lot of work to do.”

Last summer, Chelsea FC spent a lot of money to bring Romelu Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge, but the Belgian forward struggled to generate consistent form for Tuchel’s team.
