Exclusive: Hamann insists Stuttgart ace Borna Sosa good enough for Chelsea

Former Germany international Didi Hamann believes Stuttgart left-back Borna Sosa could thrive in the Premier League.

The 24-year-old is enjoying a stellar campaign in the Bundesliga, having grabbed five assists in 20 appearances across all competitions.

Signed from Dinamo Zagreb in 2018, Sosa has begun to blossom in Germany and clubs are taking notice.

Sky Germany reported last month that Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel enquired about signing Sosa after Ben Chilwell went down with a season-ending knee injury.

Stuttgart placed a €30m price tag on Sosa, who is under contract until 2025.

Hamann, who was a star for Bayern Munich and Liverpool, believes Sosa has the ability to play in the Premier League.

Asked if he could be first-choice at Stamford Bridge, Hamann told TribalFootball.com, on behalf of FreeSuperTips: “I think potentially with Alonso currently being the first choice for Chelsea at the moment.

“There was actually talk of him (Sosa) being sold a couple of years back, but he’s come back to life with the arrival of Kalajdžić.

“He crosses the ball as well as anyone around and I think he’s assisted at least half of the goals Kalajdžić has scored this season.

“He’s a danger going forward and he’s very good at defending his own goal as well.

“I think he’s a very decent player who could do a job in the Premier League and at a club like Chelsea.”
