Chelsea FC has parted ways with their manager Frank Lampard after a bad stretch of fixtures. The London based club has fallen outside the top four as they’re five points outside fourth place, sitting in ninth place with 29 points.
As a result, they’ll be looking for a manager that will get the most out of their underachieving squad. Over the summer, The Blues spent large sums of money on two significant players in Kai Havertz and Timo Werner, who have yet to live up to their transfer fees.
Their next manager needs to be one that can unlock what the two German superstars accomplished in the Bundesliga and have it translate to the Premier League, and Chelsea could be looking to a fellow German for this task.
RMC Sport reports that Chelsea is in talks with former Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel to take over the managerial position. The Blues reportedly are in advance talks with the German tactician as Sky Sport adds that Chelsea wants to have Tuchel in the role by Wednesday.
The French media outlet also reports (via Culture PSG) Tuchel will sign a three and a half year deal with an optional year. He will have the task of unlocking Havertz and Werner and is also reuniting with former players Thiago Silva and Christian Pulisic.
After being fired from Les Parisiens in December, it doesn’t seem like Tuchel will be in the unemployment line for too long.
