Tuchel pushing Chelsea to challenge Man Utd, Juventus for Saul

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is keen to get involved in the transfer battle for Atletico Madrid attacker Saul Niguez.

The Spain international has been made available by the LaLiga champions this summer, with Saul also keen on parting ways after a difficult past season.

A proposed move to Bayern Munich was shut down by director Uli Hoeness last week, though interest from Manchester United and Juventus is being maintained, reports Mundo Deportivo.

And it's emerged Tuchel is also keen on bringing Saul to London this summer.

The Chelsea manager has long been a fan of the goalscoring midfielder and believes he would fit seamlessly into his system at Chelsea.
