Tuchel told adding top-class defender to Chelsea side will win the Premier League title

Get the Chelsea word out there!

Chelsea can challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title next season if they sign a centre-back, according to Peter Crouch

Since Tuchel took over from Frank Lampard just a few months ago, he has helped turn that side into one of the best in the Premier League, and he could end the season as Champions League and FA Cup winners.

And Crouch, writing for the Daily Mail, believes we will challenge City for major trophies next term if they sign a centre-back: “Another transfer window, Charlie,” he said when asked what the Blues need to close the gap on City.

“If Chelsea can get a top-class central defender, one out of the highest bracket, that would put them in with a huge chance next season.

“Thomas Tuchel took over a really good squad but it is still behind City at the minute, for all the progress they have made.

“I cannot wait to see the next steps Tuchel and Chelsea make because I have been bowled over by the impact he has made.

“I’m so impressed and nobody in Europe would want to play them in their current form.

“They put a marker down for the Champions League final on Saturday. City will not play the line-up they used at the weekend on May 29 but it will be in their minds, the damage Chelsea can do in a one-off match.

“If you were giving me a free bet on that outcome, I would back Chelsea at the respective odds.”

Tuchel will surely be backed in that transfer window and it will be very interesting to see just what type of players he manages to bring into the club, we are linked with some big names guys.
