The German player moved to Chelsea on the 18th of June 2020 when his £47.5 million release clause was activated but was unable to meet the expectations they had for him at Stamford Bridge.
In the Premier League, he made a total of 56 appearances, scored 10 goals, and provided 9 assists.
He had a dispute with Tuchel over inadequate match time, which bolstered his return to his former club in the Bundesliga, leaving Chelsea with Hervertz, Batshuayi, and Armando Broja as attacking options.
However, Chelsea also strengthened their attack in this transfer window by signing Raheem Sterling at a price of £45 million.
Tuchel also plans to sign Wilfred Zaha this summer, who has entered the final 12 months of his 5-year contract at Crystal Palace.
