A source told The Telegraph: ‘The key is to basically work with Tuchel to come up with the best players that are available. We really want to make sure we have a good defence. We’ve got depth in midfield. We’re not desperate for an out-and-out striker.

‘Fortunately, there’s reasonable opportunities in the market right now in order to satisfy the fans’ desire to be competitive. I think it’s a combination of moves and there’s five or six that we’re going to look to make.’
