Antonio Rudiger

Antonio Rudiger will undergo a medical in London today ahead of a move to Chelsea, according to The Sun.

As per The Sun, Rudiger is on the verge of joining the Premier League champions, in a move that will set Chelsea back a whopping £34M.

Rudiger has proven himself able to perform consistently in one of Europe’s top five leagues, and also for the German national team, that may be a small price to pay for an accomplished centre-back, who is only going to get better.

The Sun believe that Rudiger’s arrival could see Cesar Azpilicueta shifted out to right-wing-back. It is unclear where that would leave Victor Moses, who was one of the surprise stars of the season last time around.

The tabloid note that Rudiger’s arrival is unlikely to have any impact on Gary Cahill and David Luiz, who are expected to continue at the heart of Antonio Conte’s back three.
