Tuchel Has Added German Ace With 8 Goals And 13 Assists This Season To Chelsea’s Six Man Summer Wishlist

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is keen on signing Borussia Monchengladbach winger Jonas Hofmann this summer, according to reports in the English media.

It is believed the 28-year-old is one of six players that have been added to a shortlist of targets, with West Ham’s Declan Rice, Monaco’s Aurelien Tchouameni, Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku, Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Wolves’ Adama Traore also included.

Hofmann has been somewhat of a late developer, having only received his first senior cap for Germany back in October, but he is a utility player who can play a number of different positions.

For Gladbach this season, he has mostly been used as a winger on either flank, racking up eight goals and 13 assists in 33 appearances. However, he has also been used in central midfield, as a forward and, on occasion, a wingback over the past few years.

That flexibility would make him an ideal player for Tuchel, who is known for changing his system on a regular basis.
