Chelsea transfer Chief, Marina Granovskaia to decide on £25m as Tuchel wants to sign his kind of players

The German head coach has led Chelsea back into the top four but, more impressively, has helped the club reach the Champions League final after defeating Real Madrid over two legs.

They also have the FA Cup final against Leicester to look forward to later this month in what could be a trophy-laden start to life in west London for Tuchel.

When Tuchel took over from Frank Lampard in January, he said at the time that he was happy with the squad at his disposal.

No signings were made in the final few days of the midseason transfer window, but he may well want to make a few changes this summer to help mount a title challenge next year.

Players such as Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho are being linked with big-money moves to Chelsea.

And the club have proven that they’ve got the money to spend having outlayed close to £250m last summer on new recruits.

That was largely financed though by player sales from recent years, including Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata.

And Granovskaia will likely be tasked with shedding some of the players on the fringes of Chelsea’s squad.
