Thomas Tuchel closes in on Chelsea move after arriving in London to complete transfer details

Thomas Tuchel is reportedly in London to complete his proposed move to Chelsea after the Premier League outfit officially ending Frank Lampard’s spell at Stamford Bridge.

Tuchel, Allegri, Nagelsmann and Brendan Rodgers are heavily linked with a move to Chelsea amid replacing Lampard who is regarded as the worst manager under Roman Abramovich’s era.

It’s believed that Chelsea opened talks with Tuchel over the Chelsea job when Lampard started failing to get the results in the Premier League but the club’s legend had the support of transfer strategist Marina Granovskaia.

However, with Chelsea able to beat weak sides of Morecambe FC and Luton Town convincingly in the FA Cup, the West Londons hierarchy attributes club’s struggle in English top flight league to managerial incompetence and therefore decided to sack Lampard.

Chelsea have already began solving their identified problem by way of appointing a new manager- someone deem capable of turning the club’s fortunes. It’s understood that Chelsea have been in serious contacts with Tuchel over the last 24 hours and finally released a statement on club’s official website to confirm Lampard’s departure.

With Chelsea’s quest to instil a more competent hand to that of Lampard eventually coming faster, Tuchel was asked last Sunday to fly to London on Monday to complete the proposed move to the Premier League.

According to our sources, the German International has already arrived in London and will be heading to Chelsea for official confirmation of his deal.

Tuchel has become jobless since parting company with PSG last month and will be into management after a month. In May 2018, Tuchel signed a two-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain, replacing Unai Emery.

Tuchel’s first foray into the transfer market at a heavyweight was the permanent signing of Monaco forward Kylian Mbappé for an initial fee of €135m on 1 July.

Tuchel departed Paris Saint-Germain with a record of 95 wins, 13 draws, and 19 defeats in 127 games, with the best win percentage in Ligue 1 history (75.6%) and the highest average of points per game (2.37, tied with his predecessor Emery).
