“Romelu Lukaku is a fantastic player but a player from Inter and with all due respect I will not talk about him.”
However, the German coach admitted he wanted to sign a striker this summer.
Tuchel added: “With the exit of Olivier Giroud, we could use a player who plays with their back to goal whose strength is to keep possession from long balls so we can add this direct style of play to our portfolio.
“This is the characteristic of player that is not Tammy Abraham, Timo Werner or Kai Havertz, so this is a profile we don’t have in the squad.
“It could be useful but not for any cost and not hectic or in panic as no matter what happens we will be competitive and have trust in our guys and that we can still develop.”
