Chelsea boss Tuchel: Do we need to buy? That's a clear yes
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel admits new signings could offer his squad a lift.
The German warned Chelsea's hierarchy earlier this month that the season could be wrecked if signings were not made following injuries to Ben Chilwell and Reece James.
He has since seen their title challenge collapse – and admits defeat to Manchester City last week mentally affected his players.
A left wingback remains the priority for Tuchel – but attempts to recall Emerson Palmieri from loan at Lyon have so far been rejected by the French club.
Kenedy, who was recalled from loan at Flamengo last week, is seen as an option if no alternatives can be secured, but Tuchel wants to bring in a specialist wingback.
Ousmane Dembele is also on Chelsea's radar, with Tuchel a long-term admirer, but cover for Chilwell is the priority.
Discussing potential signings as the end of the window approaches, he said only, “I cannot say no to it. Also I am not convinced it is a clear yes."
