Liverpool are interested in Chelsea centre-back Antonio Rudiger, according to Mundo Deportivo’s live transfer rumours section.
The German possesses a current market value of €40 million.
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
Dejan Lovren recently departed Liverpool for Zenit. With that being the case, it would make sense if Liverpool were looking to replace the centre-back.
Rudiger was ultimately a part of the Chelsea defence that conceded 54 goals in 38 Premier League games last season.
Chelsea are apparently prepared to listen to offers in regards to Rudiger, which does highlight that he did not play well last season.
If he had of performed, Chelsea would not be open to offers.
With that being the case, we don’t expect Liverpool to sign Rudiger. The Reds are the current champions of England, which means that they could sign a player who is in better form.
