​Chelsea manager Tuchel planning summer moves for Haaland, David Alaba

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel wants to make statement signings in the summer to help his team challenge for the title.

The German knows he will be expected to challenge for the Premier League next season, or risk losing his job.

And according to Sky Sports News, Chelsea want Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund in the summer.

Another target is David Alaba of Bayern Munich, who will be a free agent.

The Blues will have money to spend, and Haaland is the striker they see completing their attacking unit.

Meanwhile, Alaba is 28 and could slot in at left back, defensive midfield or central defence.

Real Madrid have been linked with the Austrian, but an official deal has not been announced.
