Tuchel insists Chelsea squad doesn't need overhaul

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel insists his squad doesn't need an overhaul this summer.

Tuchel has urged caution ahead of the upcoming transfer window - and quashed any talk of an overhaul of his squad.

"Honestly, if we have a transfer ban tomorrow, I would be a happy coach next season," Tuchel told reporters. "So we can push this team to the next limit and level, like we do. But I have ideas, of course, I have ideas how to improve this team maybe.

"It's very, very difficult because, first of all, we have a very strong group with a strong bond, which means that we need excellent characters. That is the most important thing because we have top guys in the dressing room, and I will not allow anybody to ruin that and have a bad influence in there.

"It's not like a puzzle where you take out a piece and put the next piece in. This is a complex situation, every transfer market.

"So I'm absolutely calm at the moment because of course, we have some ideas, some profiles, maybe which we think we could add to this group to make maybe even a bit more competitive, more options.

"It's another strange situation with the pandemic worldwide. It is necessary that we as a club need to adapt and be patient. Is there even a market? How does it look? What can we invest in? Are there even chances to generate money? Is there interest in our players?

"Do other clubs have the capacity to buy players from us? Are we able to buy and do we want to? So the situation is not clear and so for me, it's best to be patient and I agree with the club in this to not lose our head."
