Chelsea are interested in signing Werder Bremen attacker Max Kruse, according to Sport Bild.
As per Sport Bild, Werder Bremen would be willing to sell Kruse if an offer in the region of £16M comes in for him.
The German outlet believe that he is on the transfer radar of Premier League champions Chelsea, but the Blues will face stern competition in the race to secure his signature.
Sport Bild believe that our Premier League counterparts Liverpool are also keen to draft in Kruse this summer. Jurgen Klopp faced the 29-year-old several times during his time in the Bundesliga, and thus will likely know him well.
There doesn’t look to be any dire need of attacking reinforcements in Antonio Conte’s squad, but if Sport Bild are correct in reporting that his valuation is ‘just’ £16M, he may well be worth a punt.
Kruse found the back of the net 15 times in 23 Bundesliga appearances last campaign. That sort of goal contribution would be more than welcome at Stamford Bridge.
