Antonio Rudiger: Tottenham interested in Chelsea defender | Football News


Antonio Rudiger started both matches of the German Nations League earlier in September

Tottenham are keen to sign defender Antonio Rudiger from Chelsea.

The Germany international has considered his future at Stamford Bridge after falling down the pecking order of the club’s center-backs.

Following the summer acquisition of Thiago Silva by Chelsea from Paris Saint-Germain, Rudiger has missed out on the first three Premier League games of the season.

Frank Lampard favored Kurt Zouma, Andreas Christensen, Fikayo Tomori and Silva, but Chelsea struggled defensively, allowing six goals in their first three games.

The 27-year-old is believed to be considering a loan for more playing time ahead of the European Championships next summer, but Chelsea are unlikely to let any of their players join their Premier League rivals on temporary agreements.

Chelsea declined to comment when contacted by Sky Sports News but they rarely do business with Spurs. Carlo Cudicini was the last player to trade Stamford Bridge for North London in 2009.

Rudiger has alleged that he was the victim of racist abuse during Chelsea’s match at Tottenham last December. Metropolitan Police and Tottenham have found no evidence to support the claim.

Speaking on Monday ahead of Spurs’ Chelsea fourth round and Carabao Cup meeting, Lampard warned that no assumptions should be made about Rudiger’s future.

“I wouldn’t assume anything,” Lampard said. “And I’m not assuming Antonio or any player on the team (is leaving). “
