Chelsea have joined the race to sign Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller, according to reports.
The Blues are considering making a move for the German international next summer as a replacement for Diego Costa.
Costa is currently the Blues first choice striker but the Spaniard is having a poor second season in the Premier league and the Blues are considering allowing the striker leave the club at the end of this season.
Last summer it was reported that Costa had failed to adapt to life in London despite a superb first season, but the Spaniard’s struggles this season has caused Mourinho to identify potential replacements should the club decide to part company with the former Atletico Madrid striker next summer.
And, the Mirror reports that Chelsea are set to Battle it out with Manchester United in the race to sign Muller from Bayern Munich.
Manchester United has been linked with a move to sign Muller in the last two summers but the Red Devils have failed in their attempts to lure the striker to England.
Thomas Muller is valued at around £72million and a bidding war between the two premier league clubs will only drive the player’s transfer fee higher.Follow Football News Arena on Facebook and Twitter for the latest transfer news, injury news, team news and rumours from across the major Leagues in Europe and around the World.
