Tuchel on Dembele and January

In continuation to the Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel insists he was happy with the club’s January transfer window despite not bringing in any new players.

The Blues did not spend a penny during the mid-season market as they opted to stick with their current squad.

And, while he admits they did look to see if deals could be done, Tuchel remains content with how the window panned out.

Speaking in the pre-match press conference ahead of their FA Cup fourth round clash against Plymouth today, he said: “I am satisfied because it was a calm window and to be calm was the best thing.

“We were open for things.”

On deadline day, Chelsea were heavily linked with a move for Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele.

The 24-year-old’s contract expires in the summer and he looked as if a move to Paris Saint-Germain was closing in.

Responding specifically to talk of Dembele, he added: “I did not have contact with Ousmane. There was no contact in winter between us.”
