According to German media outlet Bild, Chelsea are preparing a bid for Bayern Munich centre-back Chris Richards.

Richards caught the attention of Chelsea after his impressive performances for Bayern reserve team. He has made 22 appearances scoring 2 goals, establishing himself as first-choice option this season.

He has a contract with Bayern Munich until the summer of 2023 but the Blues are hoping to tempt the 19 year old to dump the Munich for London.

Richards is yet to play for Bayern Munich’s senior team and it is believed he could be tempted to leave the German side.
