Tuchel worried about Chelsea falling further behind Premier league rivals Manchester City and Liverpool.
Thomas Tuchel has admitted he is already concerned about Chelsea closing the gap on Liverpool and Manchester City next season.
Chelsea’s future prospects remain uncertain due to the uncertainty surrounding the takeover from Roman Abramovich at Stamford Bridge, with the club effectively on the market until the deal is completed.
Tuchel had lunch with Boehly last week, and the American was present for the 1-1 draw with Leicester on Thursday.
Despite the fact that the deal is nearing completion, the German concedes Chelsea is lagging behind their competitors.

With defenders Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen set to leave the club after their contracts expire following Sunday’s season-ending match against Watford, Tuchel believes the team’s goalkeeping needs to improve.
“The top teams like Liverpool bought top players in the winter to make their squad stronger,” Tuchel said at a press conference.
“City have signed Haaland already to make their squad stronger. We are losing players so at the moment so my focus is to build a strong team and see what is even possible and see if it is possible to close the gap.”
“We have struggled with efficiency, with goalscoring, with consistency, determination and precision in the box against teams who sit deep.
“But we lacked huge quality for much of the season with Ben Chilwell, N’Golo (Kante), Reece James all injured for long spells and it’s maybe a miracle we have been in the top-three without these key players.
“We missed them for weeks and weeks and it never stopped for us.
“Maybe it just needs luck to change for us and we have everyone available.”
