Good News: Chelsea ‘Signs’ Bundesliga Wildcard, Azpilicueta’s Replacement to Avoid £71m Headache

Despite having some excellent players who can live up to fans’ expectations, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is still looking to add to his roster. The German manager is reportedly aware that a long-term midfield target would be necessary. As a result, he is reportedly working to bring Jonas Hofmann from Borussia Mönchengladbach to the Premier League.

In recent transfer windows, Borussia Monchengladbach’s star, Jonas Hofmann, has been linked with a move to Chelsea. When it comes to Chelsea, the most apparent player to compare Hofmann to is club captain Cesar Azpilicueta, who has been with the club since arriving from Marseille in 2012.

Despite the inherent instability of several head coaches changing styles and formations, Azpilicueta has remained an essential component in Chelsea’s squads.

Few players have contributed as much value as the 32-year-old, the current club captain, and a strong advocate for Chelsea on and off the pitch.

Hofmann might provide a less expensive option to Chelsea’s pursuit of Jules Kounde, a more experienced defender, with Sevilla’s sports director Monchi reaffirming his position that Sevilla would not sell 22-year-old for less than his €85 million release clause.

Under Tuchel, Hofmann might be an excellent rotational option for Reece James at right-back or wing-back, with the academy star set to remain the assured starter in that position for many years to come due to his great skill and age.

Hofmann has also been a reliable contributor in the final third, scoring four goals in ten games this season and adding eight goals and 13 assists in 33 appearances last season.
