German media outlet Bild had previously reported that there has been contact between Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel and Borussia Mochengladbach midfielder Jonas Hofmann, with the 28-year-old potentially keen on a fresh challenge after five years at Gladbach.
Tuchel worked with the 28 year old midfielder during his time as Borussia Dortmund boss.
Hofmann has now teased fans about a potential move to Chelsea in the summer.
“Basically, I feel good at Borussia, I’ve always emphasised that,” Hofmann told Ruhr Nachrichten, as quoted by Sport Witness.
“It may be that one or the other club has expressed its interest.
“Nevertheless, for me, the absolute focus is on having a successful season with Borussia and dedicating myself fully to success. I put my personal situation under it.”
Then when asked directly about contact from Premier League giants Chelsea, Hofmann replied: “I think it’s clear that other clubs will notice you if you perform well. Therefore, it is possible that one or the other has already asked.”
Hofmann is reportedly valued at around £14million by Gladbach, with his contract running until 2023.
