Chelsea have reportedly held talks with Thomas Tuchel regarding the managerial position at the club
The role is currently occupied by Antonio Conte, but speculation persists that the Italian could end his two-year spell in West London during the summer.
Numerous names have been suggested as a possible replacement but according to German journalist Rafa Honigstein, discussions have already been held between Tuchel and a member of the club’s hierarchy.
On the Totally Football Show, Honigstein said: “I have it on pretty good authority that Thomas Tuchel made a very good impression on Marina Granovskaia in a meeting they’ve had.
“I don’t know how recent that meeting was. Remember, they were talking to him before the start of this season on the assumption that Conte might actually go.”
Tuchel has been linked with both Arsenal and Bayern Munich in recent times, with the latest reports suggesting that he has agreed a deal to take over from Arsene Wenger at the end of the season.
