Tuchel is likely to have the final say on whether or not the Blues will rival Manchester United in the race for De Jong, as the Chelsea chief has been given a more hands-on role in the club’s recruitment plans following the departures of Marina Granovskaia and Petr Cech.

The German has already been busy in the transfer market, with the club closing in on a £45m deal for Raheem Sterling. The Manchester City and England star is keen to move on from the Etihad this summer and would become the focal point of a new-look Chelsea attack.

Romelu Lukaku completed a return to Inter Milan just 12 months after he joined the Blues in a club-record deal, leaving Tuchel light on attacking options.
