Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has revealed there’s at least one space in his Chelsea squad available for a new midfielder following Billy Gilmour’s decision to join Norwich City on loan.
Speaking to Chelsea’s in-house media after the pre-season win at Arsenal, Tuchel said: “There’s a minimum one space there because Billy left us which is good for his personal career and personal development because he was fighting with N’Golo, Jorginho and Mateo [Kovacic], one of the best midfields in the world.
“He was very helpful in the last season and now he goes on loan to get more minutes. This is how to improve him, it was a good decision.
“He was very important and we have to be careful. We come from a situation when today Kova was on the pitch but N’Golo only 30 minutes. Jorginho is coming back tomorrow.
“So we have to be very careful that we don’t overuse them and we are prepared for maybe little injuries. That is why we are still scouting.”
Should Ruben Loftus-Cheek take up the space in midfield or should Chelsea sign Declan Rice from West Ham? Drop your comment in the comment section below.
