Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger is willing to join Barcelona in the January transfer window, according to reports.
Antonio Rudiger, 27, has failed to break into Chelsea’s first team this season yet to feature for the blues in the 2020/21 premier league season.
Chelsea summer signing Thiago Silva and have been the preferred choice of coach Frank Lampard at the center back, with the German International’s future at Stamford Bridge in debut.
According to Sport Barcelona are in the market for a new central defender, with City Eric Garcia been their main target.
If the Spanish giants are unable to bring in Garcia, then Rudiger will be an alternative target.
Speaking on his future with the blues, “The club didn’t tell me that it was absolutely necessary for me to find a new club and that they definitely didn’t have me in their plans for the next few months. Rudiger told The Athletic
“I also turned down one or two options myself. I wasn’t prepared to pack it all in simply because I had been left out a few times. I enjoy living in London and like being at Chelsea.
“Naturally, I looked at a couple of options in the two weeks before the end of the transfer window.
“There was a possibility of a loan deal, in order for me to get more game time. Due to many different reasons and the shortage of time, nothing materialised in the end.”
Chelsea are willing to let the out of favored defender go who they signed a £33.3 million deal from Roma in 2017.
