Daily reports linking various players to Stamford Bridge have suggested that transfer conversations are taking place, but nothing solid has occurred.
However, the Football London reports that Chelsea's efforts to sign French defender Jules Kounde have been greatly aided by reports that Sevilla has identified Galatasary defender Marcao as a potential alternative.
Kounde, 23, is a priority transfer target for Chelsea, and Tuchel is certain that he will sign with them after hearing rumors that there have been no negotiations with Barcelona, who were thought to be the favorite to sign him.
Todd Boehly will have to shell out £60 million to sign Jules Kounde from La Liga in order to give Tuchel the support he needs during this summer's transfer window.
The agreement to bring Raheem Sterling to Stamford Bridge from EPL rivals Manchester City is expected to be finalized by Friday of this week.
