Chelsea keen on signing with Bayern’s Niklas Sule

Tue 20 April 2021 | 7:36

The Blues have set their heart on getting Niklas Sule’s signature in the summer, based on recent reports.

Thomas Tuchel

has supervised a tremendous improvement in

Chelsea

’s defense since being appointed in January.

Since the German tactician started his reign, the Blues have had 15 clean sheets, including the 1-0 win over

Manchester City

in the FA Cup semi-finals on Saturday.

Despite the improvements, Tuchel is eager to strengthen his squad this summer, as he aims to grab the

Premier League

title next season.

As per reports from

The Athletic

,

Bayern Munich

defender

Niklas Sule

is their main target since Tuchel is keen on acquiring a central defender. The 25-year-old’s future at the Allianz Arena is uncertain as his contract runs out in 2022 and there have been no talks over extending his deal.

The Bundesliga giants may decide to cash in on him in the summer to avoid letting him become a free agent.

With Hansi Flick announcing his departure in the summer, the Germany international’s role in Bayern became even more uncertain.

Chelsea are also interested in Jules Kounde and Jose Gimenez, but their buyout clauses are very hefty. Sule, on the other hand, is a cheaper option with a price tag of £30m.
