Manager Frank Lampard was sacked after five defeats in his final eight Premier League games, leading to the German tactician’s arrival on Tuesday.
A huge squad shake-up at Chelsea is not expected, with Thomas hired on an initial 18-month contract.
A move for a new centre-forward is already thought to be underway and the Mail claim on the Blues targeting 20-year-old Erling.
The competition promises to come from the likes of Manchester City and Real Madrid, although Haaland may be the second choice to their respective top targets of Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe.
Borussia Dortmund would demand an extravagant sum although German media insist the club wouldn’t allow him to depart cheaply even if they miss out on a lucrative spot in the next campaign’s Champions League.
Die Borussen marksman is said to have a buy-out clause in the region of £63 million, although it is not known if it can be triggered this year.
An offer may arrive nonetheless with Chelsea allegedly keen to back Tuchel by splashing out on a forward.
Last summer, the west Londoners spent in the region of £230 million in a bid to challenge for the Premier League title.
Frank had operated under a two-window transfer ban in his first year in the dugout, bringing through a host of homegrown youngsters.
It is said that Thomas will continue to harness the potential of Tammy Abraham, Reece James, Mason Mount and Co.
