Thomas Tuchel is expected to replace Frank Lampard as Chelsea manager after Roman Abramovich sacked the Blues legend.
The German head coach spent two-and-a-half trophy-laden years at Paris Saint-Germain.
He managed the Ligue 1 outfit for 127 matches, winning 95 of those and losing just 19 overall – meaning he boasts a win percentage of 74.8 per cent from his time there.
Tuchel ensured that the French capital club were a free-scoring side, with players such as Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe at his disposal with 337 goals scored across his tenure.
In all, Tuchel won six trophies at PSG, including two Ligue 1 titles, the Coupe de France, Coupe de la Ligue and two Trophees des Champions.
He also brought the club closest to Champions League glory, steering them all the way to the final of the competition in 2019-20, where they ultimately lost to Bayern Munich.
The 47-year-old spent a similar amount of time as Borussia Dortmund head coach.
Tuchel steered Dortmund to victory in 67 out of 107 games, suffering defeat on 17 occasions, posting an overall win percentage of 62.6%.
In his two seasons at Signal Iduna Park, Tuchel won a single trophy – the DFB Pokal in 2017, when they beat Eintracht Frankfurt 2-1 in the final.
He finished second in the Bundesliga in his first season, but could only manage a third-place finish in his second term as head coach, with RB Leipzig finishing three points ahead of them in second.
Tuchel reached the quarter-finals of both the Europa League and Champions League.
As well as making use of 4-3-3 at both Dortmund and PSG, Tuchel has also deployed the 3-5-2 formation (or 5-3-2, depending on defensive mentality), with wide forward play complemented by flying full-backs.
