Lukaku a 'big upgrade' for misfiring Werner, says Chelsea boss Tuchel

 The German feels that his fellow countryman will be able to raise his game to new heights alongside the Blues' newest recruit

Romelu Lukaku's natural abilities as a number nine can help Timo Werner flourish after a misfiring first season at Chelsea, Thomas Tuchel has said ahead of the Belgian's second debut.

The former Inter striker has returned to Stamford Bridge 10 years on from his first stint, to further bolster the Champions League holders' attack following last term's European success.

He joins a strikeforce that includes Germany star Werner, who struggled to adapt to life in the Premier League at points in his maiden campaign with the club. With Lukaku's addition, however, Tuchel feels that the former will be able to raise his game to new heights.
