Borussia Monchengladbach star Jonas Hofmann has suggested that Chelsea have made an approach over a possible transfer move this summer.
The 28-year-old winger played under Thomas Tuchel at Dortmund and reports in Germany have claimed that the Chelsea boss is keen to bring the player to Stamford Bridge.
Hofmann has been outstanding for Borussia Monchengladbach this campaign with seven goals and 11 assists in 25 matches.
And the Germany international has suggested that the blues have been monitoring his progress.
When asked about Chelsea’s interest, Hofmann told Ruhr Nachrichten: ‘I think it’s clear that other clubs will notice you if you perform well. Therefore, it is possible that one or the other have already asked.’

Hofmann also says that he is only focused on seeing out the campaign with Borussia Monchengladbach, who are four points behind Europa League play-off spot in the German league.
‘Basically, I feel good at Borussia, I’ve always stressed that,’ he said. ‘It may be that one or the other club have expressed their 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 below it.’
