Everton have identified two Chelsea players that they would be interested in signing this summer, according to reports.
This comes after it was reported that Chelsea are interested in signing Richarlison from the Toffees.
Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are showing interest this summer, but with Champions League football and the Blues needing a new forward to replace the outgoing Romelu Lukaku, the Everton star could prefer a move to Stamford Bridge.
This comes after Tuchel previously admitted that he would discuss signings with members of his squad in the future.
Speaking back in April 2021, Tuchel said: Once I spoke to a conductor in Germany and he told me when he needs to find a new musician he picks maybe three, but the final decision is with the orchestra.
"This made total sense to me as they have to play with the new person.
"I'm brave enough to think what could this mean in recruiting in football."
With Chelsea’s interest in Richarlison, they have been quoted £50 million to begin negotiations.
However, there is an alternative avenue that Tuchel and his team could explore.
The Telegraph report that while Chelsea remain interested in Richarlison, Everton hold interest of their own in two Chelsea stars.
Conor Gallagher and Billy Gilmour are both attracting interest from Frank Lampard’s men and could potentially be used in any deal for the Brazilian, if Chelsea wish to explore this.
Gallagher had a fine spell at Crystal Palace this season and looks set to return to Chelsea for pre-season, alongside Gilmour who spent time at Norwich, with Tuchel confirming this.
The head coach said: “They come back for a point.
We have pre-season with them for them to show they can play the role we wish for. “They are our players. Whoever takes the place needs to do anything to keep the place."
However, Gallagher admitted that he has not thought about his return this summer. He said: "I have not really had time to think about it to be honest.
“The long season at (Crystal) Palace has only just finished really and then I have come here with England.
"I am going to be honest that’s all I am thinking about, the next four games here.
"I want to do well. I have not really thought about it."
It remains to be seen as to what the future could hold for the midfield duo, with Lampard keen to bolster his options at Everton.
