Antonio Rüdiger, who did not feature in tonight’s win over Barnsley, looks like the one who will make way after the arrival of Thiago Silva led to one too many centre backs at Chelsea, and while Silva’s old club, PSG were initially mentioned as one of the interested parties, more clubs have now joined the fray, as expected.

According to Kicker, Barcelona as well as Rüdiger’s former club, AS Roma, are also interested in the 27-year-old’s services. There is also interest from Premier League sides apparently — Liverpool had been linked at the start of the summer already — but it’s unlikely that we will want to sell to a direct rival.
