Chelsea have stepped up their interest in signing Bayern Munich center-back Niklas Sule.



Thomas Tuchel

is eager to sign a commanding center-back to bolster his defensive options at the club and they have the chance to win 25-year-old’s signature, who will be out of contract in 2022 and could be available for a cut-price fee of £26m.

According to

Todo Fichajes

, Chelsea have made contact with

Bayern Munich

over a move for Sule.

Bayern chairman

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge

is still hopeful that Sule will extend his stay with the German champions.

“We want the good German national players at FC Bayern,”

Rummenigge said.

“Niklas still has one year of contract.

"We will hold talks and see where they lead. We will look at it seriously and calmly until the summer. Coronavirus has also caused financial damage to FC Bayern.

"If we find a solution, we are generally happy to extend the contract, but that will only be possible under certain conditions.”
