Just In: Tuchel Finally Names 2 Players Chelsea Will Sign Before Transfer Window Deadline

First, Thomas Tuchel confirms Chelsea are on the hunt for a new central defender.

“We could use one more central defender if you look at the numbers. At the moment, we play with a back three and the profiles of the guys in the current back three are different,” Tuchel said in his press conference for the Tottenham game.

“We play also with Azpilicueta, who is more of a full-back. With Marc Cucurella, it is also possible. So let’s see what happens.”

Tuchel also says Chelsea are looking for a center-forward.

“We could strengthen our squad in depth in both areas [central defense and striker]. It is one thing to wish for it, another to see if it is possible. We are looking for top quality, personalities, and characters that can compete on the highest level,’ he said.

“We are calm and ambitious at the same time, and there are still some days to go until the end of the transfer period. Anything is possible until the end.’

“We will not panic and we will not try to sign players who we aren’t 100 percent convinced by. All of our signings so far have helped us. It is a day-by-day business now, to coach the team and not lose your head as a coach about what could be.

“We are ambitious and we work hard to maybe strengthen our squad further, but we’re calm. All the energy goes into the group that is here [at Cobham]. We still have time,” Tuchel added.

It also means Chelsea may give their attempt to sign Frenkie De Jong as Tuchel didn’t mention any need for a midfielder.

As for the areas mentioned by Tuchel, Chelsea have been linked with Leicester’s Wesley Fofana and Barcelona’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
