Germany midfielder Jonas Hofmann, who now plays for Borussia Monchengladbach, is the man being linked with a move to Stamford Bridge. The midfielder tipped to leave Bundesliga side in the summer.
Chelsea have their eye on the Borussia Monchengladbach star Jonas Hofmann, says Bild.
The 28-year-old midfielder has been tipped to leave Gladbach in the summer transfer window and could be available for around £14 million ($20m).
Thomas Tuchel is reportedly interested in signing a former pupil of his while at Borussia Dortmund in Jonas Hofmann.
Borussia Monchengladbach manager Marco Rose is set to replace Edin Terzic as Dortmund manager, and a club exodus may follow, according to Bild.
One player who could leave the Champions League competing club is Hofmann, who rejected a move to Tottenham in order to sign a contract in 2019.
The 28-year-old is having a fine season for Gladbach, scoring six goals and contributing ten assists, but is not expected to cost more than £14m, with just two years left on that deal he signed two years ago.
That makes him a very realistic target for big-spenders Chelsea, especially as Tuchel looks to put his stamp on the squad.
And the pair worked together while at Dortmund while Tuchel was in charge, prior to his move to PSG.
