Chelsea interested in signing 6 ft 2 Croatian defender

Chelsea have allegedly joined by Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal in the race to land Stuttgart defender Borna Sosa.

The Blues tried to sign the Croatian in the January transfer market but were unsuccessful in the pursuit of the left-back.

And according to Bild’s Christian Falk, Spurs and the Gunners have joined the west London outfit in the hunt.

All three sides would look to capture the 24-year-old in the summer transfer market. Stuttgart knocked back Thomas Tuchel’s side’s approach by slapping a €30 million (£25 million) price tag on his head.

But with the Bundesliga club second from bottom in the division, the elite teams will be circling should the side get relegated.

Dietmar Hamann has tipped him to have a successful career, whether it be at Stamford Bridge or other Premier League club.

He told “I think potentially with [Marcos] Alonso currently being the first choice for Chelsea at the moment.

“There was actually talk of [Sosa] being sold a couple of years back, but he’s come back to life with the arrival of Kalajdzic.

“He crosses the ball as well as anyone around and I think he’s assisted at least half of the goals Kalajdžić has scored this season.

“He’s a danger going forward and he’s very good at defending his own goal as well. I think he’s a very decent player who could do a job in the Premier League and at a club like Chelsea.”
