The summer transfer window is open and different clubs are working to strengthen their squads ahead of the 2021/22 season. Thomas Tuchel is one of the managers who want to add more depth to his squad as he eyes Premier League glory next season.
According to Football. london, Chelsea hierarchy wants to add 3 more faces to their squad this summer. Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia wants to sign a new defender, a midfielder, and a forward who will give Thomas Tuchel more selection options next season.
Just like Frank Lampard's tenure, England international Declan Rice has been linked with a move to Stanford Bridge this summer. The defensive midfielder is on Thomas Tuchel's radar as the German wants to add more steel in his midfield. However, his £100m release clause may seem to be difficult to reach after West Ham refused to lower his asking price.
However, Chelsea fans feel that their young midfielder Billy Gilmour should be given a chance to impress rather than spending big on Declan Rice. Reacting after the goalless draw between Scotland and England, Chelsea fans showered praises to their 20-year-old star who won the man of the match award.
The two midfielders clashed in the midfield but it was Scotland who was praised more after outclassing the highly talented England squad.
Gilmer played for 76 minutes making 40 accurate passes, 3 out of 4 accurate long balls, and made 2 tackles. Last season he made few appearances under Thomas Tuchel and this may be his breakthrough to the first team.
