The Bavarians are looking to make a swoop for the Serie A star as they continue to bolster their squad this summer.

Chelsea have been handed blow in the transfer market with Bayern Munich reportedly pursuing on of their transfer targets. The Bavarians have apparently began negotiations to be bring Juventus defender Matthjias de Ligt to the Allianz Arena, with the player keen on the move.

Chelsea have been forced to enter the transfer market for a new center half following the departure of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen this summer. Juve's De Ligt has been identified among the player shotlisted by the Blues with the likes of Kalidou Koulibaly, Presnel Kimpembe and Jules Kounde among the possible targets as well.

However, it now seems the London club will not have a smooth run in their bid to secure the service of the former Ajax skipper despite preparing a €70 million bid. As reported by Sky in Germany on Monday, Bayern Munich wish to sign the Chelsea target this summer. Their pursuit is said to be concrete, with De Ligt also eager to join the German giants and talks are progressing significantly between the clubs.

Notwithstanding this, Chelsea is claimed to be 'intensely involved' and believes that Bayern has little chance of signing the defender due to the huge price tag. Juventus is expected to be willing to negotiate for €80 million, with Bayern Munich potentially having an issue with a transfer fee of more than €60 million.
