Chelsea transfer target Jonas Hofmann hints at switch after admitting Thomas Tuchel has 'expressed interest' in him

BORUSSIA MONCHENGLADBACH ace Jonas Hofmann has hinted at a potential reunion with Thomas Tuchel at Chelsea.

Reports suggest Blues boss Tuchel is keen on bringing £14million-rated Hofmann to Stamford Bridge ahead of the summer transfer window.

Bild reported the German manager has contacted the winger, who appears keen on pursuing a new challenge.

And the versatile player, who can cover midfield as well as both wings, isn't ruling out any potential talks with other clubs.

Hofmann told Ruhr Nachrichten: "Basically, I feel good at Borussia, I've always emphasised that.

"It may be that one or the other club has expressed its interest.


"Nevertheless, for me, the absolute focus is on having a successful season with Borussia and dedicating myself fully to success. I put my personal situation under it.

"'I think it's clear that other clubs will notice you if you perform well. Therefore, it is possible that one or the other has already asked."

Hofmann started his senior career at Hoffenheim in 2011 and joined Borussia Dortmund later that year.

That is where the 28-year-old met Tuchel, who took charge from Jurgen Klopp in 2015.

The two Germans worked together for a year until Hofmann decided to join Gladbach.

The Germany international has amassed a total of 145 appearances throughout his five-year stint at Borussia-Park.

The Chelsea target has been in sparkling form this season having recorded a whopping seven goals and 11 assists in 27 matches across all competitions.
