Transfer News: Price tag for Chelsea target Jonas Hofmann revealed

According to transfer news from Leicestershire Live, Borussia Monchengladbach are set to demand €40m for Chelsea target Jonas Hofmann. While the German club are not keen on selling him, sporting director Max Eberl conceded that a bid in that region will force them to let Hofmann go.

A youth product of TSG Hoffenheim, Hofmann has spent his whole career in Germany. He has had stints with TSG Hoffenheim, Borussia Dortmund, FSV Mainz and Borussia Monchengladbach. However, it was only after his move to Gladbach that he started to gain some consistency.

The pair worked together during their time at Borussia Dortmund. Now as Hofmann wraps up his career-best season with 8 goals and 13 assists in 33 games, interest in the player is starting to grow. Chelsea and Tottenham are the two Premier League clubs who have shown interest. There is some interest from La Liga clubs as well.

Gladbach will sell Hofmann only for the right price

However, Gladbach’s sporting director, Max Eberl has quashed any such interest and wants to keep the winger. But he had to accept the fact that if a bid in excess of €40m was made, the German club would be forced to consider letting him go.

“We live in a time when nothing can be ruled out. But we certainly don’t want to sell Jonas. If at some point a club say they are offering €40m for Jonas, no club can say that we are not interested.“
