It’s revealed that Tuchel won’t transfer decisions until after evaluating the players at his disposal consisting most of the loan armies.

We take a look at 5 players looking to impress the German in attempt to regain a spot in the main team.
1. Malang Sarr
Malang Sarr was immediately loaned to Porto after Chelsea sealed a move for him last transfer window and will also he returning to London for the pre-season.
The 22-year-old joined Chelsea from Nice where he already made over 100 appearances as he was consider a major piller in the French side’s defense.
His loan to F.C Porto hasn’t seen him with many game time as he is only faced with 8 league appearances which is more reason he would want to be part of the Chelsea team.
Malang Sarr knows it’s better to be in Tuchel’s squad that returning to Portugal for another loan spell which could only come if he fails to impress Thomas Tuchel.
The Senegalese descent is talked of as Kurt Zouma’s replacement with the Frenchman strongly linked to an exit but possibly could be a rumor.
2. Ruben Loftus-Cheek
The talented midfielder has his career to save as this could be proving to be a very pivotal point for him after a career threatening injury.
Loftus-Cheek used to be a performer under Frank Lampard as he was one of the many Academy products Lampard preferred to field.
Thomas Tuchel has similar mindset about Academy stars and Loftus-Cheek is keen to rely on this to break back into the squad.
The 25-year-old already knows Tuchel rates him high after seeing the German compare him to Chelsea Legend; Michael Ballack.
Glen Hoddle also thinks same of Loftus-Cheek cheek after stating his similarities in ways both men play and also how good Loftus-Cheek has been in the box and also off the ball.
3. Ross Barkley
The former Everton man is another player who has his career on the line and a revival looks likely if only he gets to impress Thomas Tuchel.
Barkely was sent on loan to Aston Villa after a trying spell at Stamford Bridge.
Sadly despite having a beautiful start on arriving Aston Villa, Barkely suffered setbacks and at such was retired to the bench most of his remaining days at the club.
Villa possibly won’t be looking to renew his loan deal and it’s yet unknown what the future holds for Barkely who will be more secured if Tuchel likes his style of play.
4. Tammy Abraham
Abraham was mysteriously fizzled off the front page after suffering an injury against Newcastle United just few games after Tuchel’s arrival.
Prior to this, Tuchel mostly picked the English man for the number 9 role over Timo Werner and Olivier Giroud but strange to see him benched most of the remaining games.
One that almost caused an uproar was not being included in the squad for the FA Cup final which Chelsea went on to lose with Timo missing brutally.
Tammy Abraham wasn’t also called up for National duties with England already advanced into the finals. Now Abraham is left with proving he is good.
The 23-year-old already turned down offers from both Aston Villa and West Ham United with hopes of regaining his spot in the squad.
Abraham knows he only has to impress Tuchel and regain his trust after also seeing Chelsea tied down in Haaland’s deal with Dortmund demanding for a huge fee, around €150m.
Chelsea could only back off Haaland’s chase if only Tuchel’s no more considers it necessary chasing after the Norwegian and that solely depends on Tammy Abraham’s performance.
5. Callum Hudson-Odoi
Hudson-Odoi made the headlines when Tuchel pulled him off few minutes after subbing him into a game last season.
Since then Hudson-Odoi has lost his place as Tuchel’s favorite boy but it’s no doubt he is keen to regain that spot.
