Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is reportedly ‘interested in Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Jonas Hofmann’.
Gladbach manager Marco Rose will take over at Borussia Dortmund this summer and the club fears a player exodus as a result.
One of those linked with the exit according to Bild is £14million-rated Hofmann, who worked under Tuchel at Dortmund.
The 28-year-old was linked with a move to Spurs in 2019 but instead extended his contract with Gladback until 2023.
He’s scored six goals and contributed ten assists in an impressive season for the Bundesliga club.
Hofmann doesn’t have a release clause in his contract and it’s thought Chelsea would be successful with a bid of around £14million.
Gladbach are currently seventh in the Bundesliga but remain in contention for a top four finish and a return to the Champions League, and are set to face Manchester City in the last-16 in this season’s competition.
