With Thomas Tuchel currently available for free as a manager, following his dismissal as PSG boss, the German is now being linked with the Chelsea job, according to rumours.

However, nothing concrete has come out from these reports, with Chelsea management ready to stick with Frank Lampard until at least the end of his contract, which is due during the summer with the option to extend.

With Chelsea currently on a slump, some are hoping that the Blues hierarchy will disengage the services of club legend Frank Lampard and give Tuchel a try.

Tuchel is now a candidate for the Barcelona job, with the Spanish side keen to also sign the German.

Ronald Koeman signed a two-year deal in the summer and a horror showing may lead to him getting the boot. Barca have been struggling under Koeman, and if things continue this way, the Spanish side could swoop in on Tuchel.
