Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is ready to back Tuchel in the transfer window
Chelsea are ready for another busy transfer window. Club owner Roman Abramovich is ready to provide Thomas Tuchel around £200 million to spend in the summer to further improve the squad.
According to the Telegraph, Chelsea are looking to sign a marquee centre-forward following Timo Werner’s disappointing season. Based on the aforementioned source, Chelsea are keen to re-sign Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku to add a target-man to their ranks.
