Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel will be handed a £150 million transfer kitty to spend on new players this summer.
The Blues have had a superb transformation under Tuchel, and they are currently lying fourth in the league standings.
Meanwhile, they have also qualified for the FA Cup and Champions League finals, and could end the campaign with a double.
According to football.london, club owner Roman Abramovich has been impressed with the Blues’ progress since Tuchel took charge in January.
It is added that he will hand around £150 million to spend on new players as the club look to offer a serious challenge for the league title next term.
Tuchel reportedly wants a new centre-forward. He is interested in Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku and Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Braut Haaland.
Both players could cost more than £100 million this summer, and Tuchel will have to recoup additional funds from player sales.
Chelsea face Leicester City in the FA Cup final on Saturday evening.
