Bundesliga pair big targets as Stamford Bridge plans for the a bright tomorrow.
Chelsea are rumoured to be monitoring German international pair Mesut Ozil and Thomas Muller as Carlo Ancelotti looks to bring youth to his ageing Stamford Bridge side. The Italian is a big fan of both Bundesliga stars and is hoping to plan for the future as he sees the backbone of his Premier League winning side reach the autumn of their careers.
Having already released Michael Ballack and Joe Cole the Blues are keen to bring in midfield additions but are only interested in those of tender years and they have already been heavily linked with a move for Werder Bremen talent Mesut Ozil but are now also said to be interested in Bayern Munich youngster Thomas Muller.
Roman Abramovich is said to be ready to make a massive cash injection in order to freshen things up at the club and a move for the pair would set the west London club back around £45m but its a price the Russian is willing to pay in order to keep his side challenging on all fronts even after the likes of Frank Lampard, John Terry and Ashley Cole hang up their boots.
Ozil, 21, and Muller, 20 may well be tempted by huge salary increases that would come with a move to the club and they may well feel that a move to the club could best help their dreams of significant continental silverware.
