Roma continues to be in the transfer news headlines, and after Mohamed Salah, Antonio Rudiger could also be heading to the Premier League. In fact Chelsea are interested in the German defender born in '93, and while Kostas Manolas looked on his way to Zenit, an issue with the payment terms may change the situation with the Greek defender staying with the giallorossi. Chelsea are currentry negotiating with the player's entourage- Rudiger's brother and agent is on his way to London to meet directly with the Blues.
In the meantime, intermediaries continue to work on the deal between the two clubs. The fee being discussed is around €35 million, it remains to be seen if there will be bonuses in addition to that. But the final figure would be agreed to after the negotiation between Roma and Chelsea ends.
This is also the second time the Blues pursue the German defender, last summer they came close to acquiring him after reaching an agreement for €25 million- but Rudiger's subsequent injury that also caused him to miss the Euro ended the negotiation. Conte is still a big admirer of the German defender who can play both as a center back and right back- he would allow the Italian manager to use both a 3 or 4 man defense
