Chelsea eyeing Gladbach defender Matthias Ginter

Chelsea are eyeing Borussia Monchengladbach defender Matthias Ginter.

The Sun says boss Frank Lampard is now ready to make a bid for Borussia Moenchengladbach centre-half Ginter.

The 26-year-old has been likened to Real Madrid legend Ramos by Germany World Cup-winning skipper Lothar Mattheus.

Mattheus told Sky Sports Germany: "Ginter has become a leader at the back, in a similar way to Ramos at Real.

"He doesn't just give instructions to his team-mates, but leads them as well. That's what Ginter is doing really well at the moment. He reminds me of Ramos."

Chelsea could grab Ginter for just £30m in January.
