Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea are reportedly eyeing a deal for Jonas Hofmann. He is currently playing for German heavyweights, Borussia Monchengladbach and his time at the club nearly comes to an end. He was in outstanding form this season with six goals and 11 assists in 24 appearances for them.
Max Eberl, current club director has discussed the possibility of the 28-year-old midfielder leaving the club and have set an asking price around £34 million. Hofmann is one of the most versatile players in the Bundesliga and a move to the Premier League would be a turning point in his career.
Although he has still two more years left of his contract, he would be most likely to leave the Prussians.
Hofmann has a decision to make – join Champions League winners Chelsea or create history at Tottenham!
Jonas Hofmann made his senior debut with Borussia Dortmund during the 2012-13 Bundesliga season, aged 20. However, he had some brilliant performances for the club such as scoring the third goal in a 3-0 away Der Klassiker win against rivals, Bayern Munich.
After being on loan at Mainz in the 2014-15 season, he finally joined Monchengladbach in 2016. For the Colts, he had bagged 22 goals and 33 assists in 153 appearances so far.
Hofmann is also now included in the Germany squad for Euro 2020.
According to German media outlet Bild am Sonntag, club director Max Eberl has said that if the demands are met, the playmaker may be leaving Monchengladbach. Now, it seems his next destination could be Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur or even, Atletico Madrid.
Spurs maybe an unlikely destination for the German playmaker due to their recent form and lack of reputation for winning trophies. Thus, joining the Blues would be a better option. Hofmann has also played under current Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel during his stint at Dortmund.
Additionally, Hofmann would be a perfect fit for his new 3-4-2-1 formation used at Chelsea. Tuchel is keen on new signings to build his team for their next challenge ahead – winning the Premier League!
