Chelsea FC are interested in a swoop to sign Wolfsburg defender Maxence Lacroix, according to a report in England.
Sky Germany, as quoted by Sky Sports in England, is reporting that Chelsea FC are showing a great interest in the Bundesliga defender ahead of the 2021 summer transfer window.
The same article states that Chelsea FC manager Thomas Tuchel would like to sign a new centre-half to bolster his defensive options ahead of the 2021-22 season.
According to the same story, the France Under-20 international has been attracting interest from a number of clubs after his impressive debut season at Wolfsburg.
The report goes on to add that Lacroix has a contract at Wolfsburg that is set to run until the end of 2023-24 season.
Sky Sports go on to add that Wolfsburg are eager to retain the French defender’s services for at least another campaign.

His first Bundesliga goal came in a 2-0 win over Hertha BSC in February.
