Reports: Tuchel wants six players – and Chelsea looking to offload seven

Speculation is continuing over which players might join and leave Chelsea this summer.

The newly-crowned European champions are expected to revamp the squad in order to launch a strong challenge for the Premier League title next season.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Blues boss Thomas Tuchel will be given up to £200m to spend and has six players in his sights.

Those players include strikers Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku, who are expected to move clubs.

Kane is set to leave Spurs after indicating that he wants to go, while former Chelsea man Lukaku has been linked with a return to Stamford Bridge from Inter Milan, who are making cutbacks.

Interestingly, the Telegraph reports that Wolves’ winger Adama Traore is also among the six players Chelsea are interested in.

The other three are Declan Rice, Monaco midfielder Aurlien Tchouamen and Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Jonas Hoffmann.

West Ham star Rice, who was previously on Chelsea’s books, has long been linked with a big-money move to the Bridge.

In terms of incomings, The Guardian suggest that the Blues could offload as many as seven players in order to make room for new signings.

The players tipped to go are Kepa Arrizalabaga, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Ross Barkley, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Tammy Abraham, Kurt Zouma and Emerson Palmieri.
