'Slower than a snail': Chelsea fans react to potential transfer of 6ft4 player

Chelsea supporters have met the news that they may be lining up Niklas Sule as a possible summer signing with a variety of responses.

BILD reported the 6ft4 defender had been added to a shortlist of centre-back options that Chelsea are looking to bring in next season.

He joined fellow Bayern Munich star David Alaba and Dayot Upamencano of RB Leipzig, all three of Bundesliga influence.

Some fans were pretty conclusive in their replies by making it very clear they didn’t want Sule at Stamford Bridge.


Others were similarly sure that Chelsea would be making the wrong choice, mainly because of the other options they already possess in defence.


Marc Guehi is currently impressing on loan at Swansea City in the Championship and could be a cost-free choice if Thomas Tuchel wants to save his pennies.

The 20-year-old has played 24 games under Steve Cooper and might be reunited with Chelsea if the Swans secure promotion to the Premier League.

There were sections that welcomed Sule’s arrival with open arms.


Sule has been in and out of Hanzi Flick’s side at Bayern but was still prominent in their triple trophy success last year.

Upamencano and Alaba appear to be the preferred choices by Chelsea but they will continue to keep an eye on the giant German.
