Niklas Sule Wanted By Antonio Conte In January

Latest report according to goal.com claims that the Blues have reignited their interest in securing the services of Hoffenheim defender Niklas Sule.

The highly rated star was a prime target for Antonio Conte last summer, but the star reportedly turned down move to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are currently on a fine run-of-form in the EPL, having conceded just a goal in their last seven matches. Italian tactician Conte is reportedly not still satisfied with his defense line and he wants to strengthen it during the winter transfer window.

The duo of John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic are aging and their contract will run out at the end of the season. Report has it that Chelsea have no plans of extending their contract and as a result, new defenders will be needed after their departure from Stamford Bridge.

The 21-year old centre back was part of the Germany squad that went to the 2016 Rio Olympic game, where they won the silver medal.

With Chelsea having young talents such as Kurt Zouma, on-loan defenders  Nathan Ake and in-form Andreas Christensen on their book, I personal don’t think a move for Sule will be the right one. Chelsea can actually promote Christensen to their first team squad.
