Chelsea need new legs and fresh input to bring us to a new level – Thomas Tuchel

Chelsea’s manager, Thomas Tuchel, has said he wants to bring in more players during this transfer window to help the Blues reach new heights.

Tuchel has highlighted multiple times that Todd Boehly’s ownership of Chelsea is causing a change, but he is not prepared to compromise his standards.

In an interview with Sky Sports following Saturday’s scrappy 1-0 win over Everton, Tuchel said that the Blues are still looking to add more players this month.

If we can add, we add. Maybe not necessarily midfielders as the first option but we are open for everything and I think we can use new energy, new legs and fresh input to bring us to a new level. If not, then we will push this team but I think we could use some input and more quality. We are on it but we will not tell you!”

Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly, two newcomers to the Blues, both made their debuts in the win at Goodison Park, albeit the former was pulled off with cramp and was unable to play the whole 90 minutes.

Coming off the bench, Marc Cucurella, who recently joined Thomas Tuchel’s team had a significant influence as well.

Regarding Chelsea’s freshmen, Thomas Tuchel has this to say;

Koulibaly struggled with the physicality because he came late [into pre-season] and lacks a bit of training. Raheem was very strong, struggled also physically in the end. I was very happy with the 20 minutes from Cucurella. It was very strong and very important for us.”
