Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has hinted he could bring a wingback during the January transfer window. 

The Blues might be forced into the transfer market in January following Ben Chilwell’s injury. The England international picked an injury during Chelsea’s 4-0 victory over Juventus on November 23 and has been absent for the last five matches.

Possibility of a new face

“First, we must be sure what we do with Ben,” Tuchel said.

“Then we decide if we go for internal solutions and if we trust that we can overcome this period.

“Everything depends on Ben Chilwell and how long he is out. Then on the alternatives, if there is something to do, if there is a chance to do something.

“But we did not start this process because we want to protect ourselves and not lose focus on the most important things. The most important things right now are Ben and Marcos. From there we go.”

Chelsea will host Everton tonight at Stamford Bridge in a Premier League tie.
