The Blues, who are without Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner due to injury, are the favorites to acquire him, according to Tuchel.
Speaking in an interview with SportBild, he said:
“We have talked about Haaland a couple of times also in the transfer window. It looked unrealistic and not possible to do.
“Of course we talk regularly about him because he is a fantastic player and a profile at Dortmund, which is a big rival for us in the Champions League.”
He was then pressed if his presence would be a problem to Lukaku and Tuchel replied that he would use the Belgium international and Haaland together in a front two.
The interviewer then asked whether the presence of Lukaku would stop the deal from happening, and Tuchel replied that he would have 'no problem' using them together in a front two.
When asked again about the possibility of signing, Tuchel added:
“Let us see what will happen the next weeks.”
Haaland has met the back of the net 70 times in 69 games for his side since not accepting Man United’s offer last year to join the German outfit.
He is pulling off impressive performances this season, having scored 18 goals in 13 matches for his club and country.
Among the other clubs interested in the talisman are Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain.
