Despite a sensational couple of months where the Blues have looked unbeatable, Chelsea will surely look to add numbers and quality in January.
Antonio Conte has only just arrived and TFF believes he wasn’t completely satisfied with his summer business, despite adding players like David Luiz and Marcos Alonso, who have performed imperiously.
And latest reports suggest that the Italian maestro is looking to land a commanding young centre back who stands at 6ft 5in and has already played for the strongest nation in world football.
But his club have no intention of selling and may play hard ball over a transfer.
CHELSEA face a battle in their bid to land £30m-rated defender Niklas Sule from Hoffenheim.
And, when asked about the potential move, a spokesperson for the club said:
“I can definitely exclude that,”
Of course, player power is at its height and should the young man push for a big money move there is little that Hoffenheim can do to keep him in the longer term.
Just 21 years of age, Sule has already represented world champions Germany at full international level and made his debut against Finland earlier this year.
He has been a sensation at club level too and cemented his place in the side despite his tender years, with 95 league appearances and 6 goals for Hoffenheim since he made his senior debut in 2013 after coming up through the youth ranks.
Let’s have a look at some of his best moments for club and country. Chelsea fans: is he the perfect answer at the back or would you prefer to go for a more experienced man for the second half of the season?
