PETR CECH claims he ‘lives off his phone’ to help Thomas Tuchel bolster his Chelsea squad.
The former goalkeeper is now employed by the Blues as a technical and performance consultant.
New owner Todd Boehly is ready to shell out around £200million on new arrivals this summer.
And the west London side have already been linked with moves for Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele, Sevilla’s Jules Kounde and Manchester City star Raheem Sterling.
Tuchel is known for definitely wanting to add a defender to his squad after losing both Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.
And he could also be in the market for a new striker if Romelu Lukaku secures his return to Inter Milan.
Although many players are leaving on holiday after the international break, Chelsea are already getting down to business.
And Cech has revealed that he is already well underway to bring in new recruits.
He said: “I live off the phone! It’s going to be a busy summer. We will plan, prepare and try to be as strong as possible next season.
“I think everyone knows where we are in relation to the team. Of course we will try to strengthen the team.

“We want to do our best and be ready for next season.
“It’s going to be a tough season with a world championship in between, so we have to be prepared for that.”
Cech won four Premier League titles and the Champions League during his playing days at Chelsea.
And he was quick to praise boss Tuchel for still delivering the Club World Cup despite the chaos surrounding their recent takeover – although he admitted how difficult it will be to finish over Manchester City and Liverpool.
He added: “He did an incredible job and last season he handled the whole situation very well and managed to pull his team through.
“I hope he can continue like this.”
