According to transfer news from Express, Chelsea are set to rival Manchester City for the signing of Jonathan Clauss. The Lens wing-back has been a standout performer this season and that has led to interest from a bunch of clubs.

Calls to the national team have also been doing the rounds after an impressive season. Clauss is a versatile customer who can play anywhere on the right flank, predominantly featuring as a wing-back.
