According to The Sun via Daily Mail, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is set to hand Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel a whopping £150million to spend on improving his squad this summer.

Chelsea spent £253m on new talent last summer under former boss Frank Lampard, bringing in the likes of Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Edouard Mendy and Hakim Ziyech.

Tuchel has had an immediate impact since replacing Lampard as Chelsea boss in January, guiding the Blues to the FA Cup final and Champions League final.

Werner, who joined from RB Leipzig last season, has only managed 12 goals in 48 appearances and Tuchel is keen on bringing in a quality striker that will bang in the goals consistently for the Blues.

Chelsea have been linked with Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland and Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku.

Tuchel is also interested in signing a centre-back this summer.
