Antonio Rudiger is set to be one of the most in-demand free agents if he leaves Chelsea at the end of his contract next summer.

According to Eurosport, Premier League side Liverpool are one of the several clubs interested in signing Rudiger as a free agent when his Chelsea contract expires at the end of the season.

Rudiger has become an important player for the Blues since Thomas Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard in the Stamford Bridge dugout.

Despite his importance to the club, Chelsea are facing up the increasingly possibility that the 28-year-old will depart the club when his contract expires as Rudiger has not signed the new deal that the Blues have offered.

Some reports have claimed Rudiger is demanding £400,000-a-week to extend his Chelsea contract.
