Chelsea turn their attention to Sule from Upamecano

Wolves

Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Bayern Munich central defender Niklas Sule as per the report from SportBild.

Sule has his contract expiring on June 30, 2022 but hasn’t extended his contract duration. However, he has been valued at just £26.5 million.

However, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel would not mind bringing him to London in a rumoured list along with Erling Haaland and Declan Rice. The Blues have already spent more than £220 million in the last summer transfer window.

Niklas Sule might add experience to new-look Chelsea:

Niklas Sule joined Bayern Munich from TSG 1899 Hoffenheim during the 2017-18 season. At his former club, he scored 7 goals and assisted 3 in his overall 108 appearances.

The 25-year-old centre-back has played an instrumental role in the club’s recent treble-winning 2019-20 season.

However, in the current season, the German international is facing a lack of playing time. He just featured in 8 matches in the 2020-21 Bundesliga season.

However, this deal would benefit fellow Germans Kai Havertz and Timo Werner to develop better chemistry. Additionally, there might be overcrowding of centre-backs if he completes the move to Stamford Bridge.

Anyways, it would be the first transfer deal after the new coach Thomas Tuchel took charge. However, it would be interesting if Roman Abramovich allows to spend more money for buying new players.

Dalot Upamecano is currently in sight of Bayern Munich as a potential replacement for Sule. However, the Upamecano transfer would benefit Chelsea as they could get a chance to sign Niklas Sule.

But, the Pensioners are looking forward to sign Sule, Upamecano along with David Alaba.

The age of Thiago Silva (36 years) and the recent injury would be concerning the London club. However, as of the current situation, Niklas Sule has more chances to join the Blues. David Alaba would be available as a free transfer.

Tuchel’s side are building the confidence as they have now reached the 6th place in the Premier League table.
