Chelsea: Tuchel Finally Plays Fan Favorite, Some Fans Still Want Haaland, Tuchel Praises Kepa

Erling Braut Haaland

Despite signing Romelu Lukaku as an “alleged replacement” for Erling Braut Haaland, Chelsea fans are still reeling on the prospects of signing the teenager in the future. Haaland is currently an untouchable player in the Borussia Dortmund squad and his super-agent Mino Raiola recently confirmed that the teenager does not want to leave the German club because he was having a wonderful time in the Bundesliga.

Chelsea have also withdrawn their interest in signing the Norwegian talisman after BVB rejected several offers that were tabled by Chelsea in the transfer window. Moreover, Romelu Lukaku is proving to be a real booster for the club thanks to his visible prolificacy and strong bond with his fellow teammates. Signing Haaland is nearly impossible but one can never be too sure what will unfold in the world of football.

Calum Hudson Odoi

Thomas Tuchel has included Calum Hudson Odoi in the squad that will be playing against Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup today. Fans were worried that Tuchel was wasting the player’s talent by benching him. There was so much tension in the Chelsea fan base that some fans believed that Thomas Tuchel had had a fallout with the 23-year-old.

Recently, Borussia Dortmund had shown interest in signing the winger but their advances were blocked by Marina Granovskaia who insisted that the player was not for sale. Liverpool recently became the new suitors for the player after it was revealed that the player is not happy with how Thomas Tuchel is treating his situation at the club. However, Liverpool have not confirmed whether or not they contacted the player or Chelsea.

Kepa Arrizabalaga

Thomas Tuchel recently praised the second choice Kepa Arrizabalaga ahead of the highly anticipated showdown on Saturday against League Champions Manchester City. Tuchel said that Kepa is handling the pressure very well and his confidence in the young goalkeeper is on a full scale. He added that Kepa is more than willing to play in place of Edouard Mendy who is currently unavailable due to unavoidable reasons.
