Chelsea have made contact with Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Manu Koné ahead of a possible move in the summer.

That’s according to SportBILD, who say the Blues could face competition from Paris Saint Germain for the midfielder’s signature.

The newspaper explains that it is ‘becoming increasingly likely’ that Koné will leave Borussia this summer, with sporting director Roland Virkus and the midfielder’s management having already talked about a transfer.

The German side’s stance has been made clear on that front, that they intend to secure a transfer fee that is ‘considerably higher’ than his current market value of €25m.

They know there is already interest in one of their star men, with Chelsea and PSG having already ‘made enquiries’ about a potential transfer.

Koné’s dream is a move to the Premier League, which would seemingly put Chelsea in front, but then the fact that his family comes from Paris means there is that is PSG’s favour.

Either way, a transfer away from Gladbach is looking likely in the summer and at the moment it appears either London or Paris will be his next destination, with Chelsea and PSG already showing interest in him.
