Thomas Tuchel is reportedly on his way to England ahead of an appointment to become head coach at Chelsea.
Tuchel is set to replace Frank Lampard, who was sacked after 18 months in charge at Stamford Bridge on Monday.
The German has been available since getting sacked by Paris Saint-Germain last month. And he could be present for Chelsea’s home Premier League fixture against Wolves on Wednesday evening, provided he satisfies coronavirus protocols.
The 47-year-old must test negative before arriving in the UK and must also provide a negative test before he enters Chelsea’s bubble. Only then will he be allowed to attend the Blues’ matches and training sessions, although he must quarantine at all other times for five days.
However, It is unclear when the former Borussia Dortmund and Moans coach will be presented to the media as Chelsea’s new head coach. Tuesday’s expected press conference ahead of the game against Wolves is yet to be scheduled.
Tuchel is expected to sign an 18-month contract at Stamford Bridge, with the option for a further year.
