Tuchel unsure about Chelsea signings this month: We don't have absolute need

New Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is unsure he will make any signings before the January transfer window closes.

The German has until Monday to make additions to his squad, having replaced Frank Lampard in the dugout earlier this week.

"It is hard for me to judge right now," Tuchel replied when asked if he would sign any new players.

"We have now one game and two training sessions and I am very happy with what I see so far, the performance, the attitude and the talent and potential

"I think the squad is not too big. N'Golo Kante came back today so we have 22 players plus the goalkeepers for our programme in the three competitions. Absolutely not too much.

"I have the feeling right now that the guys deserve to be trusted and I want to trust everybody.

"If a possibility comes along that we all agree on making us stronger right away, okay, we will not hesitate I'm sure, but it's not like we have the absolute need to do something."
