The Evening Standard report that Tuchel intends to make moves for several of his former Chelsea player at the end of the current campaign.
As Kovacic approaches the final year of his current contract with Chelsea, it’s known that he’s one of the players who’s drawing the most attention.
Tuchel, the former head coach of Real Madrid, is said to hold the 28-year-old midfielder in high regard, and Manchester City is also said to be a fan.
A long list of Chelsea players, including Kovacic, Mason Mount, Hakim Ziyech, Callum Hudson-Odoi, and Christian Pulisic, now face uncertain futures at Stamford Bridge.
Given that Kovacic and Mount are approaching the end of their contracts and that the Blues could now be ruthless in their efforts to raise money, they might be the first high-profile players to be sold.
