Thomas Tuchel gives Chelsea strikers an end-of-season ultimatum to improve before deciding whether to take more offensive signatures … despite £ 180 MILLION spending last summer

  • Chelsea brought in £ 180 million in offensive talent last summer
  • Timo Werner and Kai Havertz are among those struggling for goal
  • Tammy Abraham has not played for almost two months, but is the top scorer
  • Tuchel wants his attackers to shine in the battle for a top four finish

Thomas Tuchel says he will give Chelsea’s failed forwards until the end of this season to stop their slump before deciding if more reinforcements are needed.

Chelsea brought in £ 180 million in attacking talent last summer, but Timo Werner and Kai Havertz are among those struggling for the goal.

Tammy Abraham has their most league goals, with six, despite not playing for nearly two months.

But when asked if this is sustainable – or if Chelsea needs a new No. 9 – the German said, “ For the next eight weeks, we just have to think about how to improve the score and the scoring situation, and nothing else, and then in the summer we think further and together with the club we think about which solutions are the best solutions for us.

‘Is it the best solution to stay with our team? Is it the best solution to stay in the formation we have? Can we improve individually and as a group on the training field … these are the questions for June.

For now, in April when we arrive, everyone knows that when you read the statistics, it’s clear and the guys are missing out on this last percentage of confidence if they don’t score.

He added: “Everyone wants higher grades, we, you, but of course it is difficult for us to produce, but we will not stop pushing.”
