Why A Thomas Tuchel-Ousmane Dembele Reunion Is Needed At Chelsea
With the 2021/22 season now over and the transfer window upon us, Chelsea’s summer transfer plans can now get underway following the £4.25bn takeover of the club by the consortium led by Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital.
Several names have already been linked with Chelsea, most notably Jules Kounde who is expected to make the switch to Stamford Bridge this summer. But there have been widespread reports linking Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele to the club which could see him be reunited Thomas Tuchel, who enjoyed a successful time at for Borussia Dortmund together.
His contract expires at the end of June and Dembele is yet to make a decision over his future. Does he stick with the Camp Nou, or twist and depart to another side in, likely, Europe?
It’s highly unlikely that both Tuchel and Dembele changed their contact details, and after being so heavily linked with a reunion back in January, those talks could resume once again.
Chelsea have lacked goals up front with Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz all failing to sustain prolific numbers in the number nine role. All those players came to the club with a hefty fee and massive weight on their shoulders. On a free and off the back of an injury-hit season, Dembele will have a point to prove rather than justifying a price tag of some sort.
New faces and fresh ideas are clearly needed in attack for Chelsea, while it could also bring new life to Christian Pulisic, who thrived in a fearsome attack at Dortmund as well alongside Dembele. The pieces are slowly putting themselves together and with the signing of the 25-year-old, Chelsea could continue to try to close the gap on both Liverpool and Manchester City and compete for silverware after losing out in two finals to the Reds.
He has been enjoying his time off travelling to various continents and watching football all over the world, so an early deal ahead of a full pre-season with Chelsea would only be of benefit to both parties.
