Chelsea have been linked with a move for Bayern Munich defender Niklas Sule.
Apparently, Thomas Tuchel wants to strengthen the defensive in the summer and has identified the German international with 29 international matches as a potential target.

Sule is highly rated in Germany and could prove to be an excellent long term investment for the blues.
The 25-year-old center-back has only started eight league games for Bayern this season and needs to play more regularly to continue his development and realize his world-class potential.
Chelsea will hope to lure him to Stamford Bridge with the assurance of regular time.
It is believed Bayern are keen on Dayot Upamecano and his arrival could further upset Sule.
The Blues desperately need defenders and will have to upgrade against Cesar Azpilicueta and Antonio Rudiger at the end of the season.
The Spaniard is now in the twilight of his career and Rudiger has been quite inconsistent since joining Chelsea.
Sule could be the ideal partner for Thiago Silva for the blues and it remains to be seen whether the Premier League club can convince the German champions to part ways with him at the end of this season.
According to journalist Christian Falk, the blues are also keeping an eye on David Alaba and Upamecano.
Alaba is expected to leave as a free agent late this season, while Upamecano is linked to several European clubs.
