Thomas Tuchel has guided the Blues to the Champions League final in just his first season in charge of the Blues.

The Blues are also into the final of the FA Cup and are well-placed to finish in the top four after being ninth in the Premier League when Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard.

Tuchel is hoping to build on Chelsea’s success under him this season by having a successful summer transfer window.

Tuchel wants to raise extra funds for transfers through player sales this summer and has decided to sell either Marcos Alonso or Emerson Palmieri, according to Goal.

The two left-backs have found themselves increasingly on the sidelines as Ben Chilwell, last summer’s £50 million ($70m) signing from Leicester, is beginning to impress Thomas Tuchel.

At the beginning of Tuchel’s time in charge, Alonso ousted the England international from the starting XI but Chilwell has since fought back and reclaimed his place.

Emerson looks the more likely player to leave Chelsea this summer as Alonso is 30 years old with a significantly larger salary.

Emerson’s contract expires in 2022 but there is an option to extend his deal for another year while Alonso’s contract expires in 2023.
