Chelsea turn their attention towards young German hit man

After a blistering start to the Premiership, Chelsea’s season has nosedived and the club has relinquished the top position in the league table to slip below the Manchester giants. With the change in the managerial hot seat, the club is dearly looking for players with the craft and imagination to turn around the club’s faltering situation.

Reports from the German media suggest that the Bayern Munich attacking midfielder Thomas Mueller might be one of the players that the bosses at Chelsea view as having the potential to make a significant difference to the clubs fortunes and a bid for the youngster may well happen in January.

The 23-year old Mueller has made a fairy tale start to his career and was adjudged the top scorer as well as the best young player of the 2010 World Cup held at South Africa. However, Mueller had made some uneasy comments in the aftermath of the Champions League final in 2012 when he was substituted despite scoring the 1st goal in the final.

Mueller, still loyal to the Bayern cause does however remains interested in listening to offers from other clubs, thus giving a runaway hint that he wants a departure from Bundesliga.

Although Mueller has a contract with Bayern in place till 2015, his interest in playing for other big clubs and Chelsea’s need for a dominating presence in midfield and defence present a case for Mueller proving himself in foreign shores. Chelsea might just have found the perfect fit for a fresh stab at the title.
