Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is believed to want to bolster his defence with a new, imposing central defender and had identified Bayern Munich defender Niklas Sule as a key transfer target this summer.

Signing a new centre-back was a priority for former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard last summer, though he had to settle for veteran free agent Thiago Silva, and successor Tuchel is also keen to bolster his backline despite an excellent defensive record.

Bayern Munich have no intention of selling Sule this summer according to German media outlet Bild and this has now forced Chelsea to consider two other targets.

Chelsea are set to sign any of Atletico Madrid’s Jose Gimenez and Leipzig’s Ibrahima Konate this summer following Bayern Munich’s decision to rebuff any attempt from Chelsea to sign Sule.

Giminez or Konate, which of these centre-backs would you want at Chelsea?
