EUROPEAN CHAMPIONS Chelsea are interested in signing Bayern Munich star Kingsley Coman, according to reports.
It’s believed the French winger, 25, will quit the Bavarian club next summer as he has fewer than two years remaining on his existing contract.

According to The Mirror, Chelsea and Liverpool are on ‘red alert’ after an ex-Bayern sporting director casted doubts over Coman’s future.
Christian Nerlinger recently told BILD TV: “I don’t think he will stay in Munich. Bayern have a recent tendency to lose players for free.
“But you can’t do that in the long run, you have to sell players from time to time if the offer is right.
“Coman is an excellent player, but given the situation, I think Bayern will consider selling him.”
And, according to Spanish outlet Fichajes.Net, Tottenham and former club Juventus are also keen on adding Coman to their respective attacks.
But if the player’s contract isn’t renewed, his valuation will drop and the Bundesliga outfit may be forced into a sale to avoid losing him on a free.
The winger has already won TEN league titles during his career and scored the winning goal in the 2020 Champions League final against PSG.
Coman underwent minor heart surgery on Thursday but is expected to return to action within the next two weeks.
Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann told the press: “His heartbeat rhythm had a slight disturbance with a minor added beat.
“At times he had a slight shortage of breath. That’s why we opted for long-term ECG monitoring and went ahead with this procedure.”
