Antonio Rudiger in talks with Thomas Tuchel to secure Chelsea exit

Antonio Rudiger is on the verge of leaving Stamford Bridge this summer.

The German defender did not make an appearance for the Blues this season and his latest omission came in the Carabao Cup tie against Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday.

He is being further pushed down the pecking order following the arrival of Thiago Silva from Paris Saint-Germain.

The 27-year old is linked with a move with a few of the English clubs notably West Ham and Tottenham as Jose Mourinho is on the lookout for a new defender.

According to RMC Sports, Tuchel is pushing for a move for the German defender and both parties have had several conversations in the last few weeks.

When asked about a potential move for Rudiger, Tuchel replied: ‘I can only say that the club knows my opinion.

‘They know my analysis and that of my staff. I wait. The transfer window is not over.

‘The situation is not easy, but we still have a little bit of time.’

When asked Rudiger’s possible departure, Lampard said: ‘I wouldn’t assume anything.

‘And I wouldn’t assume Antonio or any players in the squad [are leaving].’
