Thomas Tuchel has agreed to take over Chelsea and replace Frank Lampard as manager of Stamford Bridge. If all goes well, the German will be able to make his debut at the head of the “blues” in the upcoming match against Wolverhampton.
The 47-year-old German specialist was fired from Paris Saint-Germain shortly before Christmas and has since been linked with the Chelsea managerial post.
Sky Sports claims that Tuhel will replace the fired Lampard. The deal between Chelsea and the German has been agreed, and the documents are being prepared.
There are no other candidates for the post, although Massimiliano Allegri and Julian Nagelsman have been linked to him.
Chelsea’s next game is against Wolverhampton in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.
Tuhel is expected to be able to lead the Blues, but he is currently in Geramnia awaiting the results of the coronavirus test and should reach England within 48 hours.
Tuhel will have to help revive the German duo Kai Haverz and Timo Werner.
