Tuchel recognises the transfers chief is a club legend and is pleased to lean on him.
He told the club's website: "I work every day with Petr Cech and he's great to have around, so I'll choose Petr with all of his experience. He works here as a Technical Advisor but he also helps out sometimes with our goalkeepers and I think it would have been fun to have coached him as a player."
In a Q&A, Tuchel also said of this season's targets: "Well we want to win, we want to compete and of course we want to be successful. This is in Chelsea's nature and of course we are up for the challenge. We will try to compete for every title in every competition we enter but I also think it will be a huge step forward if we can maintain the same quality, attitude and effort that we showed last season.
"It will be more difficult this season because we are the Champions League winners and teams will want to beat us. It will be demanding but we are up for the challenge and the goals will come by taking care of the process."
