Chelsea are keen on bringing in Hoffenheim centre back Niklas Süle in January.
Chelsea had been linked with Süle before. His agent, Karlheinz Forster confirmed an approach from the Blues last summer and told German tabloid Bild that the big and tall 21-year-old defender remained part of Chelsea’s plans for next summer as well. But, motivated by Conte’s supposed wish for a new defender, Chelsea could bring those plans forward by a few months.
However, Chelsea aren’t alone in the chase for Süle’s services. German juggernauts Bayern, known for their policy of adding some of the best players from their Bundesliga rivals to their own squad are also interested.
As well as the current starting lineup is working for Chelsea, there will come a time when we will need to change, upgrade, or simply add to our available options in the squad. A young talent such as Niklas Süle would be an excellent signing.
