Ligue 1 star Jonathan Clauss flirts with Chelsea transfer as he reveals 'dream' to move to Premier League

LENS star Jonathan Clauss has revealed his childhood dream – to join Chelsea.

The French right-back, 29, has been in sensational form this season with his side flying high in second place in Ligue 1.

Clauss has been one of Lens' standout performers this season.

The defender is now being tipped for a France call-up by Didier Deschamps.

And now in-demand Clauss has revealed he's wanted to play for Chelsea since he was a kid.

Clauss told RMC Sport: "Since I was kid, it’s been Chelsea, and it remains Chelsea.

"Would I like to discover a new country? Let’s say England…

"But I’m not really desperate to discover new countries.

"I’ll go where I’m taken or I’ll stay where I am.

"But yes, England, it makes you dream”.

Chelsea are currently well-stocked at right-back, with Reece James and Cesar Azpilicueta battling for minutes.

But Blues captain Azpilicueta is out of contract in the summer and could walk away on a free.

That would open up a spot for Thomas Tuchel to make a move for the former Bundesliga star.

Clauss played for Arminia Bielefeld for two seasons between 2018 and 2020 before joining Lens.

The defender is currently under contract until the end of the 2022-23 season.
