Shaun Wright-Phillips has claimed that he is expecting Thomas Tuchel to bring a new defender to Chelsea.
The club have just got back inside that top four and won the Champions League title, But Tuchel knows that he needs to keep adding to the squad over the course of the window as Manchester City will be stronger next season.
That has led to a whole load of rumours that Tuchel wants to add another striker and midfielder to the squad, with a number of world class players linked, But Wright-Philippe expects Tuchel to freshen up his options at the back as well as up front but feels the former PSG and Dortmund manager is ‘not in a bad place’ given the wealth of talent already present in the squad.
‘He will shore up certain areas in defence, especially now that [Cesar] Azpilicueta is quite old, even though he had a fantastic season,’ he told the Metro.
‘But with [Edouard] Mendy in goal, Thiago Silva at the back, Reece James and [Ben] Chilwell on the sides and [Mason] Mount pulling the strings, you’re not in a bad place to start.’
There is so many players linked with a move to Stamford Bridge and it will be interesting to see just what type of players that Tuchel signs. But one thing is for certain, he will get the backing from the board to get the players he wants.
We are excited to see who arrives in the transfer window as there are some big players linked with a move guys
