Chelsea star Antonio Rudiger has revealed that he is in “contact” with Bayern Munich defender David Alaba amidst Blues interest.
Rudiger made this known ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Southampton on Saturday.
The German international, who also played a key role in the Chelsea signing of Timo Werner and Kai Havertz last summer, appears to be working behind the scenes once again for the west London club.
Let us remember that Chelsea is among the clubs interested in the services of the Austrian international, with Real Madrid in the lead for his signing.
Alaba had confirmed earlier this week that he would leave Bayern Munich at the end of June 2021 when his contract expires.
“If Chelsea were to decide on one of the three players as a transfer target, I would be available to answer any questions,” Rudiger told Bild.
“I know Jerome and Niklas very well, and I have already had contact with David Alaba.”
