Bayern Munich are trying to make a new attempt to tie Niklas Sule to new terms amid pressure from Chelsea.
The German centre back, who is currently representing his country at Euro 2020, sees his current deal with the Bundesliga giants expire next summer.
BILD says Bayern want to extend his contract until 2023.
Chelsea have been aware of Sule’s contract uncertainty for a while and are still interested in making a bid for a player rated at £30million.
The 25-year-old was in and out of the team under Hansi Flick amid reported unhappiness that the incoming Germany head coach was unimpressed by Sule’s conditioning on his arrival for pre-season last summer.
Sule made 20 Bundesliga appearances this season after injury-disrupted campaign at the Allianz Arena.
