Report: Aston Villa considering ‘ambitious’ approach to Thomas Tuchel
Rumors are swirling about the future of Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard and, should the club decide to make a switch, one of their reported targets will be someone Blues fans know very well.
According Matt Law, the Aston Villa boss is in the hot seat following Chelsea’s 2-0 win at Villa Park last weekend. He needs to improve his results quickly, but even a winning streak might not be enough to keep him in place.
Should Gerrard be relieved of his duties, the first person they plan to target is former Tottenham man Mauricio Pochettino. They recognize the likely difficulty they will face in convincing the Argentine to join, given his previous Champions League experience at Spurs and PSG.

If this approach fails, the club has an even more ambitious target: Thomas Tuchel. On the face of it, it seems highly unlikely that the German is interested in returning to football at Villa Park, but stranger things have certainly happened.
Given his pedigree and achievements, Tuchel is sure to be of interest to any club in need of a manager. It looks like Aston Villa can now be added to the list of potential landing spots for him.
