Chelsea boss Tuchel chasing deal for Wolves winger Adama Traore

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is chasing a deal for Wolves winger Adama Traore.

The Telegraph says Tuchel wants a new striker, with Chelsea already registering their interest in re-signing Romelu Lukaku, whose agent was inside the Estadio do Dragao, and in Harry Kane, despite the difficulty of trying to negotiate a deal with Tottenham Hotspur.

A midfielder and at least one new defender are also on the German's wish-list which includes a right-sided player who can offer Chelsea's squad some greater balance.

Traore has emerged as a surprise target of Tuchel, who, despite being delighted with the form of Reece James, wants to add competition to the right side of defence and believes the Wolverhampton Wanderers star could offer an attacking threat at wing-back.

The addition of Traore, or a similar type of player such as Borussia Monchengladbach's Jonas Hofmann, would also help to provide cover in the wide areas with Hakim Ziyech due to play in the African Cup of Nations, which is due to run for a month at the start of next year.
