Chelsea have been active in the transfer market, but the Blues aren’t yet done, as Thomas Tuchel is targeting one more defender and a striker to wrap up the window.

Chelsea are close to completing a deal for Wesley Fofana, but it’s a move for a striker that’s yet to be certain.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has said he’d love to have his signings completed, but is even more keen for the transfer window to shut down so that he can focus on his available squad for the season.

“Right now we could need some more players in some positions, but it’s very close to the end of the transfer window, and when the first of September finishes, I will be a happy coach no matter what happens,” he said.

“I will try to find solutions and not think what could have happened. The only thing that matters is reality. On Saturday the only thing that mattered was to find a way to win the match, even from a disadvantage position.

“What will matter in Southampton is to find a way to win, step up individually and push the team from my side. This is what we will do no matter if players come or not.”
