Out of favour Chelsea winger Christian Astu is a transfer target for German Club Borussia Monchengladbach, AFS understands.
The Bundesliga outfit’s sporting director Max Eberl is eager to have the Ghana international at the club.
Astu is regarded surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge and will have to be farmed out on loan for the third successive season after joining from Portuguese giants FC Porto.
Atsu signed for Chelsea in 2013 and has already been loaned out to Vitesse Arnheim, Everton, Bournemouth and Malaga.
For the second half of last season, he scored two goals in 12 La Liga appearances for Malaga on loan but there is no doubt he enjoyed his best spell at Vitesse Arnheim, where he was voted fans player of the season.
