REPORT: Tuchel ready to hand Chelsea contract to Bayern Munich powerhouse this summer
Bayern Munich defender Niklas Sule is back on the recruitment radar at Chelsea, reports have emerged over the past 24 hours or so.
Former PSG boss Thomas Tuchel arrived far too late in the January window to be able to splash a bit of cash to try and add to a squad that is firmly regarded as one of the finest in the Premier League
However, the summer window could be a very different story, as he will know that he will need to add a couple of players to the squad that will help his side reach that next level, with Bayern star Sule on the shopping list
Now reports on The Athletic have come out and claimed that the powerful German is high up on that shopping list of Tuchel.
Sule, who is under contract at the Allianz Arena until 2022, has made over 20 appearances in all competitions for Bayern this season, is reportedly not happy with his current situation at the club
However, Flick provided words of support for Sule, who suffered a serious knee injury last season, and suggested that the Germany international’s ability to play in different positions in defence made him a valuable player to have in the squad.
“Niklas is an absolute option, whether in the centre or full-back position,” said Flick.
“He did well at Schalke [in a 4-0 win last month when Sule played at right-back]. Don’t forget that he had a long injury.
“Niklas is a fast player who is calm on the ball and helps shape the game from the back. Given his size, he has absolute strength and I’m glad he’s on our team.
“We will see how everything develops and how he sees his future. I am satisfied with his development, you can rely on him.”
Lets see how this all plays out ayy?
