Liverpool are interested in Chelsea centre-back Antonio Rudiger, according to Mundo Deportivo’s live transfer rumours section.

The report states that Liverpool are not the only club interested in the 27-year-old. Rudiger still has two years left on his current contract.

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.

However, we are not sure that Rudiger is the answer. Ruidger made 28 appearances for the Blues last season. In the Premier League, he made 20 appearances.

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.
