Revealed: The two Premier League clubs who are in talks with Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger

 

A fresh insight into the mounting interest in the signature of Chelsea star Antonio Rudiger has been forthcoming on Friday evening.

German international Rudiger has of course enjoyed a scintillating opening to the new campaign.

After being brought back in from the cold to establish himself as a key contributor at Chelsea over the 2nd half of last season, the 28-year-old has stepped things up yet another notch to this point in 2021/22.

Rudiger, before a recent injury concern, had played every minute of both the Blues’ Premier League and European campaigns, looking an absolute rock no matter his defensive partner.

In fact, so impressive has the ex-Roma man been that some, including ex-Manchester United stalwart Rio Ferdinand, have begun to point towards a ‘best defender in England’ tag.

Spurs join the fray

In turn, amid the finest stretch of the stopper’s playing career, his contract situation in west London has long marked something of a concern.

Rudiger’s current terms are due to expire next summer, with the player, to this point, having kept his cards close to his chest when it comes to his intentions moving forward.

Such uncertainty, in turn, sparked reports late last month that ‘Rudi’ has been targeted by German heavyweights Bayern Munich, with preliminary talks over the possibility of a free transfer already underway between the two parties.

And now, as outlined above, a fresh insight into the situation has been provided.

The news, however, will likely prove far from reassuring for all associated with Chelsea.

As per a report from Italian transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio, as things stand, it is ‘difficult’ to see Rudiger committing to a fresh contract at Stamford Bridge.

Not only that, but it is claimed that the German international has joined no fewer than four further clubs at the negotiating table, ahead of a potential January pre-contract agreement.

Two come in the form of European heavyweights Juventus and Paris-Saint Germain, whilst the others come closer to home – in Manchester City and Tottenham.
