German winger Hofamann could become Thomas Tuchel’s first signings at Stamford come the summer transfer window.
According to the leading German outlet, Bild, Chelsea are actively working to sign the 28-year-old attacker after six goals and 10 assists in 21 games for Monchengladbach this season.
“Chelsea are interested in trying to sign Borussia Monchengladbach star Jonas Hofmann, Bild reports,” ESPN reported.
“With six goals and 10 assists to his name so far this season, Hofmann has been at the heart of Gladbach's push for a place in the UEFA Champions League.
The report also confirmed that Hofmann previously worked with Tuchel as a youngster at Borussia Dortmund.
“However, while he may be under contract with the club until 2023, it seems as if Blues manager Thomas Tuchel is keen for them to reunite for the first time since their days at Borussia Dortmund,” ESPN concluded.
Up next for the unbeaten Tuchel is a trip to Southampton for a Premier League clash on Saturday.
