Chelsea transfer news: Blues ready to spend £23m on Antonio Rudiger just days after he joined Roma for £7.5m
The 23-year-old only joined the Italian club for £7.5m from Stuttgart on Tuesday after spending last season on loan with them.
However, prior to the deal there had been talk that Roma were ready to instantly sell Rudiger on after signing him.
And, according to Il Tempo, Chelsea have now made contact with the Serie A side over the German’s availability.
The Blues are in the market for a new centre-back this summer and Rudiger is high on the club’s list of targets.
Chelsea have set aside £23m to snap up the defender and believe that’ll be enough to complete a deal.
