Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has said the club needs to bring in more players this summer.

The Blues have only signed Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly so far.

But Tuchel is keen to add another centre back to his squad having lost Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen this summer.

Chelsea were interested in Matias De Ligt, who has joined Bayern Munich for £68m, and Nathan Ake, who appears likely to stay at Man City.

“We need a couple more to improve the squad,” Tuchel said.

“We finished third last season – there was a gap. If you want to keep your position you need to improve. You can never stand still. Other teams will overtake you. We’ve lost players.

“This is common sense. It’s the dream of every manager to find players from your own league who can adapt so easily. Raheem knows the habits of English clubs and has English team-mates here.

“Kalidou (Koulibaly) knows Mendy from the national team and Jorginho was a big help from Napoli to make the process of integration faster. They are huge players for us. We need to speed things up.”
