Thomas Tuchel asks for other recruits at Chelsea

The German coach hopes to obtain further reinforcements for his London team, and in particular in defense.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is targeting four new defensive signings.

According to the British daily Evening Standard, the German technician told his board that he wanted to recruit three more central defenders and a full-back this summer.

Tuchel must rebuild his defense

The former PSG coach has planned a reshuffle of the defense after the departures of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen. Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta are also expected to leave and sign up for Barcelona. The Londoners therefore risk finding themselves out of defensive options.

Central defender Kalidou Koulibaly has already arrived from Napoli for 40 million euros, but Tuchel does not want to be satisfied with this single arrival.

Chelsea are interested in PSG centre-back Presnel Kimpembe and are expected to revive their interest in another Frenchman in Jules Koundé. There is also the Jonathan Clauss track which has been mentioned in the press, but no concrete approach has yet taken place.
