Chelsea’s striker search this summer is set to be a very important one for Thomas Tuchel to bolster his European-conquering side to attempt to claw back at Man City’s domestic dominance.
A third Premier League title in four years was secured by Pep Guardiola in 2020/21 and they added yet another Carabao Cup title to their collection as well. They fell short in the FA Cup though, thanks to Tuchel’s tactical masterclass in the FA Cup semi final at Wembley.
But Tuchel still describes City as the “benchmark” despite usurping Guardiola three times in five months since taking over from Frank Lampard in January.
Erling Haaland is high on the priority list for both but he would cost £150million for anyone to get him this summer. Wait a year and it’s around half that but competition will be incredibly fierce for his signature.
