Chelsea reportedly make contact with Bayern Munich regarding a potential deal for defender Niklas Sule.

Chelsea have reportedly stepped up their interest in signing Bayern Munich defender Niklas Sule.

The arrival of Thomas Tuchel at Stamford Bridge is expected to lead to a number of comings and goings during the next transfer window, including in defence where Chelsea have not performed with any consistency.

With Thiago Silva now 36 years of age and several players having failed to justify their places in the long term, it appears that Tuchel is beginning to assess his options.

According to Fichajes, Chelsea have already made contact with Bayern regarding a potential €30m (£25.93m) deal for Sule.

While Sule has made 25 appearances in all competitions this season, the Germany international has been part of a backline which has conceded an increasing amount of goals since the turn of the year.

The 25-year-old has less than 18 months remaining on his contract, putting Bayern in a position where they will consider offers for his signature.
