Chelsea have reportedly intensified their interest in Bayern Munich’s Niklas Sule as part of their quest for another center-back.
The Premier League giants should hope to strengthen at the back this summer, despite an impressive defensive record since Thomas Tuchel took over in January.
According to The Athletic, Niklas Sule is a priority target for Tuchel, who has long admired the Germany international.
Sule has spent the last four seasons at the Allianz Arena but his future is uncertain as he plans to enter the final year of his contract.
A similar report recommends that Chelsea be ready to jump for the 25-year-old, accepting that Hansi Flick’s imminent departure from Bayern prompts the center to leave this summer.
