The German tactician is said to have seen Chelsea's new owner, Roman Abramovich, yesterday but did not discuss club transfers, despite rumours that a club wants to sell a target to Chelsea and is just looking for a speedy deal.
According to Express Sport, Sevilla is interested in selling French defender Jules Kounde to Chelsea and has already reached a verbal deal.
Kounde, 23, is a long-term goal for Chelsea heavyweights despite missing out on a deal a year ago due to a financial conflict.
Tuchel is a major fan of Kounde and sees him as the ideal replacement for Rudiger, who is likely to join Real Madrid as a free agent.
Meanwhile, Aurelien Tchouameni remains on Tuchel's transfer wishlist as a possible Ngolo Kante successor.
