According to The Athletic via Metro, Chelsea hope to capitalise on Niklas Sule’s uncertain future at Bayern Munich by signing the defender this summer.
The 25-year-old has just over a year to run on his deal at the Allianz Arena but the Germans are yet to open contract negotiations with the centre-back.
Chelsea’s defence has improved tremendously under Thomas Tuchel but the German tactician is still keen on signing a dominant centre-back this summer.
Chelsea are ready to back Tuchel in the transfer market this summer, with the German showing already at Stamford Bridge that his side could be a force to contend with next season.
