Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has shortlisted the names of six players he wants the club to sign this summer.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Tuchel is keen to sign Borussia Monchengladbach’s Jonas Hofmann this summer transfer window.
Hofmann, 28, is one of six players that have been added to a shortlist of targets, with Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku, Monaco’s Aurelien Tchouameni, Wolves’ Adama Traore, West Ham’s Declan Rice and Tottenham’s Harry Kane is also included.
Hofmann was mostly used as a winger on either flank for Monchengladbach this season.
He scored eight goals and registered 13 assists in 33 appearances for the Bundesliga club.
Meanwhile, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is keen to support Tuchel this transfer window after the German led the club to win the Champions League last Saturday.
Tuchel recently told reporters that he wants to bolster his squad with “two or three” additions in the summer transfer window.
Tuchel said, “Two or three could be very, very good.
“It is a constant thing to never deny change.
“That you always bring new energy, new guys who question the old beliefs, who challenge everybody in the training and in matches, so I think it is a good thing.”
