With the takeover saga dragging on and the club behind on their recruitment process heading into the first summer transfer window of the post-Roman Abramovich era, turning to internal solutions might be something Tuchel is forced to do.
Broja has scored six goals for Southampton in what has been a promising breakthrough campaign and, given Romelu Lukaku’s struggles since his return to the club, could feasibly play a role through the middle of Tuchel’s attack next season.
Gallagher, meanwhile, has broken into the England set-up after an array of energetic performances for Palace this season and could help further pad out the options in midfield, particularly as Mateo Kovacic has consistently struggled with injury.
Speaking ahead of Leicester’s visit to west London on Thursday, Tuchel said: “They will come back for sure. I want to have them in pre-season.
“We will decide in pre-season what goes on. It is heavily up to Broja and Gallagher - and how they do”.
