Bayern Munich are set to snap up highly-rated 21-year-old defender Niklas Sule, who was also being targeted by Chelsea.

The 21-year-old has played a key role for Julian Nagelsmann’s unbeaten Hoffenheim and will move to the Allianz Arena at the end of the season.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte had been interested in signing the young defender to bring youth to the Chelsea defence, with John Terry, Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivanovic at the latter part of their career, and David Luiz is also close to the 30’s mark.

But Sule has agreed a five-year deal with Bayern, who are now expected to pay £17.5million to free him to head to Bavaria in the summer, according to Bild.
