A trio of Premier League clubs are showing significant interest in Borussia Dortmund's Mats Hummels.
The Daily Express is reporting that Manchester City and Liverpool are both keen on the German centre-half who has already been heavily linked with Chelsea.
It is believed that scouts from all three clubs watched Hummels closely on Saturday night as England defeated the Germans 3-2 in a friendly in Berlin.
Chelsea have earmarked the 27-year-old Dortmund captain to become John Terry's long-term replacement at Stamford Bridge while Manchester City are desperately seeking central defensive reinforcements as doubts remain over Eliaquim Mangala, Nicolas Otamendi and the ageing Martin Demichelis.
Naturally, Liverpool are also casting an eye over Hummels who enjoyed a stellar spell under Jurgen Klopp at the Westfalenstadion.
