Bundesliga stopper back on Chelsea agenda


Chelsea are ready to return for Hoffenheim defender Niklas Sule in the January transfer window but they face competition.

The Blues reportedly made a move for Sule during the summer but the centre-half decided to stick with Hoffenheim.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is eager to add to his defensive options during the January transfer window and is believed to be ready to make a fresh move for the 21-year-old, who made his Germany debut earlier this year.

However, the Stamford Bridge side could face a battle to land Sule, who is under contract until 2019 with the Bundesliga club, as ESPN say Bayern Munich are also keen and may launch a rival bid.
