Chelsea are interested in signing Bayern Munich frontman Thomas Muller, according to
Sportbild.

Muller’s performances both on a domestic and international stage have seen him become
somewhat of a household name across the footballing world. The world cup winner has won
every major trophy in the game and it is understandable that he would have interest from the very best clubs in world football.

At 27-years-old, he still has plenty to offer, and if Sportbild are to be believed, Premier
League champions Chelsea are keen to draft the German international into their already starstudded squad.

The German started 25 Bundesliga matches last season, scoring 5 goals and creating a further 12 assists for German champions Bayern Munich.

Muller has been a Bayern Munich player his entire senior career and with the huge money sloshing around the Premier League he could see this as an opportunity to increase his wages and perhaps go for a new challenge in his footballing career.

Chelsea are interested in signing Muller, but will face stern competition from Arsenal,
Liverpool and Juventus who are also interested in the player according to the bookies, more here.

Thomas Muller is a player who could add firepower to the Chelsea team, his versatility could see him dropped into many offensive positions in the Chelsea team.

His knack of arriving in the box at the right time would be great for the likes of Eden Hazard especially as it looks like top scorer Diego Costa will be departing the club this summer.

With Manchester City investing heavily on the likes of creative Monaco superstar Bernardo
Silva and Manchester United spending big on a new striker, Chelsea will want to keep up
with the clubs around them. Muller would be a major signing for any club in England and
Roman Abramovich has the spending power to make this happen.

Sportbild believe that the arrival of James Rodriguez at the Allianz Arena has seen all four
clubs grow optimistic that they will be able to negotiate a deal to sign Muller this summer.

However, Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is quoted by Sportbild insisting that Muller
will not be going anywhere this summer, despite interest from some of the biggest clubs in
Europe:

Powerhouse club Bayern Munich are not a club desperate for money so it would have to take a mind-blowing bid from a club like Chelsea to convince them to sell one of their greatest ever players.
