A number of players have been linked with a move to Chelsea this summer, as the Blues are targeting moves for a striker and a defender.

Sevilla’s Jules Kounde has been linked with a move to Chelsea, and the Blues have also been linked with Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku and Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland.

Speaking about Chelsea’s targets after the game, Blues boss Thomas Tuchel admitted that many players would like to join Chelsea but refused to say much about the club’s main targets.

Tuchel said: “Everybody wants to come!

“Well, not everybody unfortunately but you can imagine that a lot of players want to come and join.

“But like I said, we don’t comment on that.”

Tuchel then revealed that the club won’t try to sign any player just because of their talent but will also look at the attitude of the players and what they can bring to the group.

“The board is not offering players. That’s not the way it works so far,” he went on.

“We are talking with the board about players and have our opinions. And in the end, we target players who could make our squad stronger which is quite a challenge to find.

“We don’t only talk about talent but also about attitude because we have a strong squad.

“And there are some players of which we think that they could be a good target, good add-ons, and good improvements in our squad but I will not comment any names because I don’t like it if other coaches speak about my players and you hopefully understand that.”
