THOMAS TUCHEL will reportedly be forced to ‘make the most’ out of struggling Chelsea duo Timo Werner and Kai Havertz.
French paper L’Equipe claims the new Blues boss has been bought in to get the best out of the German duo.
And he will have to rely on them as two key players whether he likes it or not.
Chelsea chief Marina Granovskaia has reportedly informed Tuchel of the board’s plans for Werner and Havertz.
And the tactician knows he will need to get them firing if he is to succeed at Stamford Bridge.
Werner, 24, cost £47.5million to sign from RB Leipzig last summer.
He scored 34 times in his final season with the Bundesliga outfit.
But Werner has managed just ten goals for the Blues, even going 14 games without hitting the back of the net.
Meanwhile, Havertz, 21, cost an eye-watering £71m from Bayer Leverkusen.
And he has managed just five goals during an injury-hit first season in English football.

Tuchel has already made Werner a big part of his plans, with the striker playing in a front three in a new-look 3-4-3 system.
However, there doesn’t appear to be much room for Havertz, who has featured just once under Tuchel so far.
But with Chelsea’s plan made clear, Tuchel will have to find room sooner or later.
