Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel believes the arrival of Romelu Lukaku will help fire the club to the top of the Premier League.
The Blues, who last season lacked a good goal scorer despite creating lots of chances, will be delighted to have signed the Belgian international.
In an interview with TribalFootball, the German tactician stated that Lukaku is the perfect addition to the club.
He noted that the former Inter Milan star is strong in the air and will give a new power when the team crosses from the side.
“We have a strong bond and team mentality to help each other. We think Romelu, having always had Chelsea in his heart, is the perfect addition to our group. He embodies all that we’re proud of at this club.
“We spoke on the phone. Right now, he’s following protocol and quarantining for a few more days.
“Last season, we came fourth, not second, so there some bridges to be built to close the gaps. We had a very strong half a season with the group with a fantastic ending and now a very exciting start with a trophy at the beginning.
“We were looking for a certain profile and Romelu fits it. He likes to play physical, he’s comfortable playing with his back towards the goal, but he’s also very, very strong in using his speed and pace.
“Romelu has a variety of strengths. He’s strong in the air, he’ll give us a new power when we cross from the side. We don’t have to change our style of play to make him shine. He has a charisma, he is a good age, he’s a leader. Hopefully he can be a leader in our group.”
