The club said Tuchel had signed an 18-month contract “with the possibility of an extension”.
The football club also confirmed that Tuchel will be in the Stamford Bridge dugout for Wednesday’s Premier League clash with Wolves.
Tuchel arrives at Chelsea having guided PSG to four major honours and the Champions League final during his time in the French capital.
Prior to that, he spent seven seasons coaching in the Bundesliga, first with Mainz, where he led them into the Europa League, and then a successful period with Borussia Dortmund where he won the German Cup.
