Chelsea are searching for options in defence, as Antonio Conte will definitely look into the transfer market to add at least one defender to the squad in January. An injury to any of the trio who have started at the back for Chelsea in the last seven games could spell doom to our title bid.
John Terry looks out of sorts in this new system, Kurt Zouma just recovered from a long-term injury and Branislav Ivanovic isn’t the force of old.
According to The Mirror, Chelsea have joined the race for Hoffenheim defender Niklas Sule.
The 21-year-old came through the ranks at Hoffenheim and has already been tipped for greatness. Liverpool, Tottenham and Everton are interested in signing the defender, but could now face competition from Chelsea.
Sule was a member of the German Olympic Squad which won silver and is tipped to become a mainstay of national team.
