Chelsea scouts watch Roma defender

Chelsea scouts are in Germany to watch Roma defender Antonio Rudiger, who is due to start for Germany against England tonight, according to the Daily Mail.

The centre-back will reportedly cost Chelsea £30million if they like what they see.

Rudiger has made 27 appearances during this season.

To recall, on 19 August 2015, Serie A side Roma signed Rüdiger on loan from VfB Stuttgart for €4 million. The clubs agreed on an optional €9 million transfer fee at the end of the one-year contract. On 30 May 2016 Roma officially signed Rüdiger from VfB Stuttgart for €9 million + €0.5m bonuses in a 4-year contract.
