Antonio Rudiger is reportedly not interested in extending his deal with Chelsea and will likely be leaving the club at the end of the season as a free agent.
With Rudiger expected to leave this summer, Chelsea have already earmarked his replacement. The Blues are optimistic of signing Juventus highly rated defender Matthijs De Ligt who is open to joining them as soon as possible.
Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel is a huge fan of the defender and he will be delighted to work with him and help improve the super talented defender.
Although, Chelsea will need more defenders if the futures of Antonio Rudiger, Andres Christensen, Thiago Silva and Cesar Azplicueta aren’t sorted out quick.
