“50 or 60 before winter! No we will set a clear target later in the season,” Tuchel joked.
Lukaku is talked by many as being the missing piece to complete Thomas Tuchel’s managerial masterpiece at Stamford Bridge after seeing the Blues suffer low conversion rate last season.
Tuchel on his end has added that he hopes the former Man United front man proves to be missing piece.
“I believe everyone needs a role. The guys who left us played an important role in the last campaign and it’s not nice to let them go,” Tuchel continued.
“But it sometimes important because everyone needs a role and a situation that needs fighting for.
“Is Romelu the missing piece? We hope but at the same time we try to find solutions to any questions asked in games.
“We want still have a strong squad and a squad that makes a team effort. Romelu is that kind of personality and profile that we were missing up front. From now, it’s our job to push ourselves to the limit.”
“We have one more training session to go but the week was a heavy load,” Tuchel continued when asked if Lukaku is ready to face Arsenal.
“He was with the group with the late starters, so it was an overload week so far.
“Today was low intensity and tomorrow we will have an important session before the match. We hope he will be on the pitch on Sunday and it looks likely.”
Arsenal lost their first match to newly promoted side, Brentford but will be hoping to make up when they face Chelsea on Sunday having also completed a permanent deal for Martin Odegaard.
