Chelsea will win the Premier League title next season if Thomas Tuchel signs a ‘world-class striker’ this summer, according to William Gallas.
The Blues finished fourth this term but have been tipped to challenge the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool following the club’s impressive revival under Tuchel.
Chelsea were just ninth when the German manager replaced Frank Lampard at Stamford Bridge but managed to climb into the top-four places in the second-half of the season, while securing a stunning Champions League triumph and reaching the FA Cup final.
Gallas believes Chelsea are primed for a genuine title bid next season and says the title will be heading to west London if Tuchel brings in a top-class striker this summer.
If Chelsea buy a world-class striker, they will win it. From those three, Chelsea have the best chance.
‘To be a big club, you have to qualify for the Champions League – only big clubs qualify for the Champions League.
‘That’s why City, United, Chelsea and Liverpool qualified. Not Arsenal and Tottenham – they are not big clubs.
‘OK, Arsenal is a big club with history but it’s been a long time since they won the Premier League so they need to get back. And Tottenham, it is a long, long time since they won the league.’
