'He is not happy': Fabrizio Romano has exciting news for Chelsea, says they're going to be 'really busy'

Fabrizio Romano has claimed on his YouTube channel that Thomas Tuchel still wants three new signings before the summer transfer window shuts.

The news comes as welcome exciting news for supporters after Chelsea were outclassed 4-0 by top four rivals Arsenal, with there being less than two weeks until the Premier League season gets going.

Barcelona have been a notable pain in the side of the Blues, already beating them to a deal for Raphinha, and now looking to hijack their deal to sign Jules Kounde.

Romano has claimed the Catalan side have also annoyed Tuchel, with it set to inspire a busy end to the transfer window in West London.

He said: “Let me say. Tuchel was furious after Chelsea’s game with Arsenal. Of course it’s pre-season football, but Tuchel is not happy. He’s saying ‘we need quality players’ and from what I’ve told he is not happy with Barcelona.

“In general, Thomas Tuchel wants three new players. He wants centre-backs, he wants attacking players, he wants new signings.

Tuchel wants three new signings

“So he knows how important it is for Chelsea to sell players to be able to sign new players during the final days of July and month of August. At the same time, he wants three new signings. It could be more, we will see but Chelsea will be really busy.”

Despite the Kounde developments, the Blues are still notably in the market for a number of defenders, with Presnel Kimpembe and Josko Gvardiol also linked to a move.

In the last few hours, it has been claimed the Blues are looking to also hijack PSG’s move for Nordi Mukiele, looking to add a versatile figure similar to Kounde.

Whoever they do sign, reinforcements are necessary, as the club currently look miles off the pace likely to be set by Manchester City and Liverpool in the opening weeks.
