Inter Milan are allegedly preparing to make a move for Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger next summer, with the Serie A champions looking to sign free agents.
Sempre Inter reports that Antonio Rudiger has emerged as a transfer priority for Inter Milan in the next summer transfer window, according to the print version of Gazzetta Dello Sport, which was carried by the website Sempre Inter. The reigning Serie A winners look to be interested in bolstering their defensive options, and they appear to be concentrating their efforts on soon-to-be free players.
Since his current contract with the Blues expires at the end of the season, Chelsea centre-back Antonio Rudiger is the ideal candidate. As a result of the club’s alleged inability to satisfy his pay demands, Rudiger is unlikely to extend his stay in West London beyond the current season. That has been now confirmed, as per the latest reports coming in from the media outlets.
Inter seem to be eager to add some much-needed depth to their defensive unit, with Rudiger appearing as the most likely candidate
It has placed Inter on high alert as the Nerazzurri prepare for the possibility of losing Milan Skriniar to a transfer elsewhere. The Slovakian international has recently been linked with a transfer to Tottenham Hotspur, while the club’s other senior defender, Stefan de Vrij, has an unclear future at the club as well.
Even Alessandro Bastoni might find himself the topic of attention from prominent clubs all around Europe in the near future. As a consequence, Inter seems to be eager to add some much-needed depth to their defensive unit, with Rudiger appearing as the most likely candidate.
The German international has previous Serie A experience, having previously played for AS Roma for a number of seasons. Rudiger had made an impressive impact during his 72 competitive games for the Italian giants, and his performances earned him a lucrative transfer to Chelsea in the summer of 2017.
Antonio Rudiger has been linked with a transfer to one of the most prestigious teams in Europe
In order to move on, the former Stuttgart superstar has decided to call time on his Chelsea career after a total of 164 competitive games in all competitions thus far. His services at the back were crucial in helping the Blues win the Champions League championship the previous season, and his leadership was crucial in helping them finish in the top four of the Premier League.
Because of Rudiger’s performance under Thomas Tuchel, he has been linked with a transfer to one of the most prestigious teams in Europe. Several clubs, including Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, are apparently in advanced negotiations with the German over a possible free transfer next summer, while other clubs, including Barcelona and Bayern Munich, are willing to compete with Inter in the pursuit of the Chelsea defender.
However, the Serie A winners do not lack options, with German international Matthias Ginter apparently emerging as another major target for coach Simone Inzaghi for the next summer transfer window.
