Timmy Chandler has enjoyed a solid start to the Bundesliga season for FC Nurnberg, and at least one other club has taken notice.

According to German publication Bild, VfB Stuttgart has set its sights on Chandler as a potential replacement for expensive fullback Khalid Boulahrouz. Stuttgart, where Jurgen Klinsmann played early in his career, could make a move for the U.S. international during the looming winter transfer window as it aims to improve on its seventh-place standing in the Bundesliga, but Nurnberg is in no rush to let go of Chandler.

Nurnberg manager Martin Bader reportedly said the club has been in preliminary talks with Chandler over an extension, but the 21-year-old defender said he wants to focus on getting relegation-threatened Nurnberg further away from the drop zone first.

Chandler's current deal ends in 2013.

What do you think of Stuttgart's interest in Chandler? Would you like to see him make the move? Prefer he stays with Nurnberg?
