Thomas Tuchel has identified the two men he wants to sign in the summer to strengthen Chelsea’s defence.
And it is not surprising that both of them currently play in the Bundesliga.
Dayot Upamecano has long been linked with a hots of clubs, including Manchester United. The 22-year old is with RB Leipzig and signed a new contract with them last summer that expires in 2023.
Meanwhile Hans Sule plays for Bayern Munich and Chelsea are already reported to have started preliminary discussions with his representatives.
Sule has won three consecutive Bundesliga titles with Bayern since joining the club from Hoffenheim in 2017. He came on as a substitute in the Champions League final against PSG in Lisbon last August.
However, he is out of contract in 2022, and there are doubts over his future given that he appears to have fallen out of favour In Munich, making just 8 Bundesliga starts this season.
