Good News As Chelsea Offer €25m to secure Stuttgart Wing-Back

Chelsea are said to have held talks with the £25m-rated Stuttgart star in January, before the German side blocked the move, as they are set to secured the Wing-Back star signed.

Meanwhile, Stuttgart would ‘have to accept’ a €25m bid from Chelsea for full-back Borna Sosa.

Thomas Tuchel was keen on signing the 24-year-old as cover for Ben Chilwell, but Stuttgart didn’t want Sosa to leave mid-season. And that interest remains according to Heidenheimer Zeitung (via Sport Witness), who claim that despite no ‘concrete offer’ from the Blues, a bid of €25m would be successful.

HZ claim Stuttgart ‘would have to’ accept an offer in that region, due to their need for money to conduct their own transfer business this summer, but also because they have ‘assured’ Sosa can leave for around that fee this summer. Although nothing has been ‘deposited’, Chelsea are willing to pay as much as €28m for Sosa, meaning if they do enter serious negotiations they are likely to get the deal over the line.

Sosa could be one of the six signings promised to Thomas Tuchel this summer.
The German head coach has held talks with co-owner Boehly and recruitment staff to finalise Chelsea’s plans for the summer transfer window. This is according to The Telegraph, who state that the Blues boss will be handed a £200m transfer kitty this summer.
