New Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is interested in signing David Alaba and Niklas Sule.
The coach is working on building a strong defence for the Gunners and Germany’s Bundesliga has been seen as an alternative ground to best legs.
According to BILD, Tuchel’s appointment has seen Chelsea make a new move for departing Bayern Munich defender Alaba.
Off contract in June, Alaba is understood to have committed to Real Madrid next season – though his father has insisted the Austria captain has not signed a pre-contract with anyone.
Along with Alaba, Tuchel is also keen on his Bayern teammate Sule.
Sule could be made available at Bayern this summer as they close in on a deal for RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano.
