Chelsea reportedly keen on Stuttgart defender Rudiger

Chelsea are one of several clubs keen on Stuttgart defender Antonio Rudiger, according to the Express.

Manchester United and West Ham are also said to be interested in the 21-year-old along with Juventus, Bayern Munich and Monaco.

“Of course I am aware of the interest from Manchester United,” he is quoted as saying.

“They are definitely one of the top clubs in Europe and they are in a league I have been dreaming of. The Premier League is very physical, intense, breathtaking and with a lot of goals.

“My focus, though, remains on playing for Stuttgart. For now, I just have to try and progress as a player.”

The Express once again suggest Chelsea are trying to sign Sami Khedira, with reports in Spain claiming that Arsenal have already held talks with the Real Madrid midfielder over a £100,000-a-week deal.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is said to be considering making a bid. Khedira played under him at Real.

And the Daily Star claim Arsenal could try to beat Chelsea to the signing of Paris St-Germain forward Edinson Cavani, who has also been repeatedly touted as a Blues transfer target.
