As per the semi-reliable source Evening Standard, Thomas Tuchel wants to bring at least one player in January.
Ousmane Dembele is reportedly on Chelsea’s radar as Tuchel is a long-term admirer of the player who he coached in Dortmund.
The German, who coached Dembele at Borussia Dortmund, gave his verdict on his former player. He said: “He is a very good player when he is in his top level.”
“I am very fortunate to have trained him in my time at Dortmund. It was only one year, it should have been longer. I needed to leave and he decided to leave.”
However, bringing in left-back cover for the injured Ben Chilwell remains the priority for the Blues.
The German had hoped to sign cover before now as just over a week is left for the window to shut.
The report does not mention any new names for the left-back search.
