Chelsea have been linked with Roma defender Antonio Rudiger – and reports claim the Germany international is close to signing for Chelsea and could do his medicals this week.

Fans have been divided by Chelsea’s move for the 24-year-old after selling Nathan Ake, but Rudiger did his chances of winning the hearts of the Blue fans no harm whatsoever in the Confederations Cup final by starring in Germany’s 1-0 win over Chile.

Rudiger was instrumental as Joachim Low’s side secured victory in St Petersburg thanks to a 20th-minute goal from Lars Stindl.

In an intense final against Chile, the 24-year-old was part of a back three which kept Chile’s relentless attack at bay despite the continuous threats of the like of Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez and Eduardo Vargas.

His role in the victory did not go unnoticed by Blues fans, who were quick to flock to social media to praise one of Antonio Conte’s top transfer targets.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
