Chelsea want Thomas Muller to replace Diego Costa


Diego Costa once again grabbed the headlines for wrong reasons. The Spain striker looked sulky during Chelsea’s encounter with Tottenham and vented his frustration by throwing his bib towards Jose Mourinho.

While Mourinho was quick to diffuse the growing tensions between the pair, it is becoming increasingly evident that Costa is seen no longer an irreplaceable figure at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are actively looking to sign his replacement, and are tracking several forwards for either January or next summer.

According to reports from the Mirror, Chelsea are plotting a move to sign Thomas Muller from Bayern Munich. 

Muller, who has scored 29 goals in all competitions this season, has been a long term target of Manchester United. The Red Devils tried to sign the German forward in the summer, and had a reported €100m bid rejected

It can be fairly assumed that Chelsea need to submit a ridiculous bid to prise him away from the Allianz Arena. Bayern are determined to keep Muller at the club, while the player himself hasn’t shown any desire to leave the German club anytime soon.
