Chelsea, Man Utd, and Spurs in transfer battle for Germany’s Jonathan Tah, but Bayer Leverkusen delaying negotiations.

The race for highly sought-after Germany centre-back Jonathan Tah is heating up, with Chelsea reportedly leading the charge. Premier League rivals Manchester United and Tottenham are also said to be vying for his signature, making the competition fierce. With a release clause of £15.5million, Tah could be a valuable solution for clubs dealing with injury woes, including Liverpool. However, Bayer Leverkusen’s reluctance to sell in the January window and their current position at the top of the Bundesliga could complicate any potential transfer. As the battle for Tah’s services intensifies, the stakes are high for both the player and the interested clubs.

Chelsea are leading the race for Bayer Leverkusen centre-back Jonathan Tah, according to reports. The German defender has caught the eye of several Premier League clubs, including Manchester United and Tottenham. Liverpool are also said to be keen on Tah, who has a release clause of £15.5million in his contract. However, the clause does not come into effect until the summer, and Leverkusen are unlikely to sell in the January window.

The club’s position at the top of the Bundesliga has been further strengthened by Bayern Munich’s 5-1 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt. Leverkusen will also be without Edmond Tapsoba and Odilon Kossounou when they participate in the African Cup of Nations in January, leaving them hesitant to sell Tah and become heavily depleted at the back. As they prepare to face third-placed Stuttgart, a win would see them go six points clear at the top of the Bundesliga, although they have played a game more than Chelsea.
