Tottenham are interested in signing defender Antonio Rudiger from Chelsea.
The Germany international has been considering his future at Stamford Bridge having fallen down the pecking order among centre-backs at the club.
Following Chelsea’s summer acquisition of Thiago Silva from Paris Saint-Germain, Rudiger hasn’t featured in the opening three Premier League games of the season.
Frank Lampard has favoured the likes of Kurt Zouma, Andreas Christensen, Fikayo Tomori, along with Silva, but Chelsea have struggled defensively, allowing six goals in their opening three games.
It is thought the 27-year-old would consider a loan move away for more game-time ahead of the European Championships next summer, but Chelsea are unlikely to let any of their players join Premier League rivals on temporary deals.
Chelsea declined to comment when contacted by Sky Sports News but they rarely do business with Spurs. Carlo Cudicini was the last player to swap Stamford Bridge for north London in 2009.
Rudiger alleged he was racially abused during Chelsea’s game at Tottenham last December. Both the Metropolitan Police and Tottenham found no evidence to support the allegation.
