There is a battle on to bring Stuttgart full-back Borna Sosa to London this summer, with Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea all interested in a summer move, according to reports in Germany.

Chelsea already proved their interest during the January transfer window when they made an approach for the left-back which was dismissed by the Bundesliga club.

Stuttgart put a £25m price tag on the 24-year-old to fend off suitors, but they will struggle to keep hold of him in the summer with the string of Premier League sides interested and as they face the possibility of relegation.

German publication Bild report that Arsenal and Spurs have joined Chelsea in targeting Sosa, who is even more likely to leave if Stuttgart go down. A distinct possibility with the club currently 17th out of 18 in the Bundesliga and with just one point from their last seven games.

Sosa comes with a glowing review from former Liverpool star and Germany international Dietmar Hamann, who said he is more than capable of playing for Chelsea in the Premier League.


The German told TribalFootball: ‘He crosses the ball as well as anyone around. He’s a danger going forward and he’s very good at defending his own goal as well.

‘I think he’s a very decent player who could do a job in the Premier League and at a club like Chelsea.’

The former Dinamo Zagreb full-back has won five caps for Croatia after making his international debut last year although his experience in European football is minimal, making three Champions League appearances for Dinamo Zagreb back in 2016.
