Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly submitted a bid for Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger.
The 27 year old German international has not been a part of Lampard’s squad for the last three Chelsea matches and could now leave before the October 5 deadline.
According to Italian transfer expert Nicolo Schira, Spurs have submitted a loan offer for the German defender.
Schira tweeted: “#Tottenham have made an official bid to #Chelsea for Toni #Rudiger on loan with option to buy. Talks ongoing. #transfers #THFC #CFC.”
With Rudiger having less than two years left on his Chelsea contract, the Blues would expect him to sign an extension before leaving on loan.
