Chelsea invested heavily in the summer transfer market, as the Blues dished out over £200m to make some signings.

Thomas Tuchel was only just appointed in January, and although he inherited a good squad from Frank Lampard, every manager tends to buy their own players who suit their philosophy.

The German boss has often hailed the quality of the Chelsea squad he inherited, and he has now admitted that there’s yet to be a concrete plan for transfers this summer.

According to the Chelsea manager, the pandemic hasn’t helped matters, and there’s also the question of who to sign, who to keep in the squad and who to sell.

“We have to wait,” Thomas said in his press conference when asked whether or not the Blues will spend big this summer.

“It’s another strange situation with the pandemic. It is necessary that we need to adapt and be patient. Is there a market? How does it look? What can we invest in? Are there chances to generate money with interest in our players? Can other clubs buy our players?

“The situation is not clear and so for me, it’s best to be patient and I agree with the club on this. We have to fully trust the guys we have. We have eight decisive weeks of decisive matches in which we can achieve our goals.

“My trust and concentration is totally on the players that are here.”

Chelsea may go for a striker this summer, and the club has already been linked with Erling Haaland and Sergio Aguero.
