According to German outlet Kicker, Hofmann’s performances at Gladbach have caught the eye of many teams across Europe.

The player was a favorite under Thomas Tuchel and a reunion could be on the horizon.

Tottenham are also interested in the midfielder, whose contract at Gladbach runs until 2023.

Hofmann spoke about the growing interest from other clubs over him back in March. The German told Ruhr Nachrichten:

“Basically, I feel good at Borussia; I’ve always emphasised that. It may be that one or the other club has expressed its interest.

“Nevertheless, for me, the absolute focus is on having a successful season with Borussia and dedicating myself fully to success. I put my personal situation under it.”

Hofmann was also asked about Chelsea’s supposed interest in him, to which he responded:

“I think it’s clear that other clubs will notice you if you perform well. Therefore, it is possible that one or the other has already asked”

The midfielder is coming off a spectacular 2020-21 season. Hofmann was a standout player for Marco Rose’s side, contributing 6 goals and 11 assists in 26 league games for Borussia Monchengladbach.

It remains to be seen whether the German will join Chelsea in the summer and reunite with his former boss Thomas Tuchel.
