Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel will hope to get Romelu Lukaku out of the door and from there he will now hope for some in-coming that will shape his team.

There have been wholesale changes already with the departure of Marina Granovskaia who has been one of the pillars of success at Chelsea during the Roman era.

Todd Boehly and his consortium have promised they will continue with the success that Roman Abramovich built at the club.

There are reports that Boely will hand Thomas Tuchel a £200 million investment this summer as they try to challenge for the Premier League title and try to wrestle back their Champions League trophy they lost to Real Madrid.

Thomas Tuchel is said to have drawn up a list of players he will look to bring in and top of that list is Manchester City’s English forward Rahim Sterling.

Long-term target Jules Kounde from Sevilla has been linked again this summer even though he has had to undergo surgery to correct pain, Barcelona are also said to be monitoring his situation.

RB Leipzig left centre-half Josko Gvardiol has been in the discussion also to be the replacement of Andreas Christensen.

Thiago Silva is not getting any younger and there is the need to bring someone who has the legs, experience and temperament to play at Stamford Bridge.

There is a chance that there could be another midfielder to add competition with Rice James from West Ham mentioned even though West Ham value him around £100 million.

So with everything being reported, here is the team Thomas Tuchel could line-up with next season.
