With a new gaffer at the helm, it was only a matter of time before Chelsea were linked with the acquisition of some summer signings from the Bundesliga.
It was only natural that with a German in charge, his homeland would be see as the source of some new talent.
Today (Friday), two pieces of speculation have emerged.
The first, comes courtesy of the German news source, AZ, who are implying that Thomas Tuchel is looking towards the Bavarian giants, Bayern Munich, when it comes to acquiring another defender, with the target being 25-year-old Niklas Sule.
The second, also courtesy of a German media source, this time Bild, infers that a midfielder may be a target with the 28-year-old Borussia Monchengladbach player, Jonas Hoffman, on our radar.
Personally, I would not read too much into the speculation, Tuchel’s tenure as the Chelsea boss is still in its infancy, there will be some changes to the squad, it is only natural for a new boss to want to shuffle things around.
But I reckon Tuchel is still assessing those he currently has, in his squad, before implementing any purchases or indeed sales.
Southampton v Chelsea?
Southampton to Win!
Chelsea to Win!
