Rudiger has decided to quit Chelsea after he was again left out of the roster for their EFL Cup tie against Barnsley and is now looking for a new side.
He is not keen to spend the campaign ahead of next summer’s European Championship as the fifth choice centre-half at Chelsea.
Barcelona and AS Roma have allegedly shown an interest in signing him and he has also been mentioned with a move to the reigning Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain in the ongoing transfer market.
According to an Italian outlet Tutto Mercato, he is being extensively offered around in Italy, with I Rossoneri and I Nerazzurri also being sounded out.
Both Milanese sides are in the market for a central defender and Rudiger has emerged as a chance heading into the final stretch of the transfer market.
Rudiger has experience of playing in Serie A with AS Roma and appears to be open to the idea of returning to Italy’s top tier.
Chelsea could let the Germany international leave on loan with an option to buy and his €3 million per season salary falls within the budgets of both AC Milan and Inter Milan.
In the meantime, members of the Bayern Munich roster are expecting Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi to move to the Allianz Arena, according to a report from The Telegraph.
Head coach Frank Lampard may be more willing to allow the player to go out on loan rather than give the green light to a sale.
