Chelsea and Bayern Munich want Niklas Süle from 1899 Hoffenheim

Chelsea could raid 1899 Hoffenheim in the January transfer window to sign defender Niklas Süle but face competition from Bayern Munich, according to ESPN.

21 year old Süle has impressed for Hoffenheim this season playing in the back three of a 3-4-3 formation under coach Julian Nagelsmann. Antonio Conte also employs a similar formation at Chelsea and has reportedly asked his board to go all out to bring the German international defender to Stamford Bridge in the winter transfer market.

Bayern Munich are also said to be interested in Süle but Chelsea are thought to be the frontrunners in the chase for the player’s signature should he leave Hoffenheim in January.
