Jerome Boateng has informed Chelsea that he is at hand to help get a deal done for Jerome Boateng of Niklas Sule.
Boss Thomas Thuchel will be looking to improve that back-line in the summer transfer window and add a bit more proven quality to the side, especially as he knows that Thiago Silva will not be around forever.
That has led to speculation in the media that we are interested in raiding Bayern in the summer for the signature of Boateng or Sule, who both look set to leave the Bundesliga Champions.
Boateng is out of contract at the end of the season and has not been able to agree a new contract, with reports that Bayern have acquired Dayot Upamecano as the immediate replacement for the German ace.
And Sule has also been linked with a move away from the club after failing to establish himself in the first-team this season, leading to suggestions that we are looking to pay £25 million to try and secure a five-year contract.
Now, amid the speculation, Boateng has opened up and told the board that he is at hand to help the club get some deals done, Asked about the rumours surrounding the two Bayern stars, Rudiger – who helped lure Timo Werner and Kai Havertz to Stamford Bridge – told Bild’s Christian Falk: ‘If Chelsea were to decide on one of the three players as a transfer target, I would be available to answer any questions.
‘I know Jerome and Niklas very well and I’ve already had contact with David Alaba.’
