Chelsea linked with Jonas Hofmann

Jonas Hofmann began his senior career with Borussia Dortmund, after spending much of his youth with Hoffenheim.

And the 28-year-old subsequently went on to notch 59 appearances across all competitions for BVB.

Hofmann never really cemented himself as a regular at Signal Iduna Park, though, and was loaned out to Mainz in 2014/15 as a result.

This was followed by a permanent departure from Dortmund in 2016, when Hofmann linked up with Borussia Monchengladbach.

And the three-time capped German international has since gone on to feature 153 times across all competitions for Gladbach, scoring 22 and assisting 33 in the process.

It is campaign just gone, though, which has proven Hofmann’s most impressive.

In 33 Bundesliga outings, he found the net eight times, as well as providing 13 assists.

On the back of his solid 2020/21, Hofmann was linked with both Chelsea and Tottenham:

Max Eberl discusses Hofmann transfer

As shown above, it was claimed that Hofmann would set any potential suitors back around €15m.

However, recent comments on the part of Borussia Monchengladbach’s sporting director suggest a fee someway north of €15m would actually be required.

When speaking recently, sporting director Max Eberl admitted that whilst they do not want to sell Hofmann, they cannot rule anything out.

Eberl then seemed to suggest that if a club were to offer €40m, then they would be open to selling the winger:

“We live in a time when you can’t rule anything out.

“We certainly don’t want to sell Jonas. But if at some point a club is offering 40 million euros (£34m) for Jonas, we can’t say we’re not interested.”
