The Blues have been linked with a move for the Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland this summer. Although the German outfit are adamant that the Norwegian will not be sold anytime soon, the Blues are prepared to make a big-money move for him.
Chelsea spent £45 million on Timo Werner last season, but the German has been quite mediocre. On the other hand, Haaland was in outstanding form last year, and he managed to score 41 goals across all competitions.
The 21-year-old would be an upgrade on Werner, and his arrival could transform the Chelsea attack.
Depending upon the opposition, Tuchel could use Rice and Kante as his starters to remain solid defensively. Also, the 22-year-old England international could allow the Chelsea manager to rotate Kante more often so that the 30-year-old Frenchman can remain fresh for the big games.
Here at Anytime football, we look at how Chelsea could line up next season with the signings of Haaland and Rice.
