Chelsea have started negotiations with Roma’s center-back Antonio Rudiger.
Antonio Conte is desperate to sign a new defender this transfer window and now has turned his attention to the German international.
According to The Mirror, Rudiger is said to cost 30million pounds and Chelsea are hopeful they will complete the deal.
Leonardo Bonucci, Virgil van Dijk and Jerome Boateng have been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge.
However, Rudiger was a Chelsea target in the past after impressive displays with Roma, earning him a regular spot in German national team.
