Recent reports from German media outlet Bild (via Daily Express) suggest that Chelsea are keen on signing Bayern Munich star Kingsley Coman in the upcoming transfer window as Thomas Tuchel looks set to add to his options in the winger’s department.

The report further states that the Blues will face stiff competition from Manchester United; however, with 24 months remaining on his present contract, Bayern are in no rush to cash in on the player.

Coman’s Amazing Season At The Allianz Arena

With 8 goals and 12 assists in thirty-six appearances across all competitions, Kingsley Coman enjoyed the most productive season of his career this term. Moreover, he has managed to put up some awe-inspiring numbers on the board – averaging 1.8 shots, 1.6 key passes, 1.9 dribbles, 0.9 crosses and 1 long ball per 90 minutes in the German top-flight. Furthermore, with 25.5 passes played per game with a success rate of 84.9%, the Frenchman can drop deep to facilitate his side’s attacking gameplay.

It goes without saying that the 24-year-old winger has played an instrumental role in Bayern Munich’s charge to a ninth successive Bundesliga, and an average WhoScored rating of 7.11 only highlights how impressive his overall game has been this season.

The Right Choice For Tuchel?

With Manchester United rather focused on securing Jadon Sancho’s signature, Chelsea should be able to sign Coman with little to no competition if Bayern set a suitable price tag on the player.

He’d be an upgrade to Tuchel’s existing options in the winger’s department – be it Christian Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech, or Callum Hudson-Odoi. The Bundesliga star has been one of the most consistent players of his side over the past years, and his experience at the highest level will definitely help the  Blues build a winning mentality. Hence, Tuchel might try his best to get the deal over the line this summer.
