Kicker: Barça go for Rüdiger

FC Barcelona has Antonio Rüdiger among its objectives, according to the German newspaper Kicker. The center-back does not have the confidence of Frank Lampard, who has him as his fourth and even fifth option for the rear. In fact, has not even made the London club's roster to face Barnsley in the EFL Cup, as he did not do it last weekend in the game against Liverpool.

This has sparked the interest of several European clubs. Those who would be most interested in taking over the services of the German would be Barcelona and Roma, where he was already between 2015 and 2017, before joining Chelsea. Both clubs would like to immediately close the signing of the defender, who still has two years left on his contract with the 'blues'. The options to incorporate it would go through an assignment.

With the arrival of Thiago Silva, who will be the undisputed starter, Rüdiger has seen how Christensen, Zouma and Tomori have won the battle for the other place. The surprising thing is that Chelsea, a few weeks ago, wanted to renew their contract, according to the German newspaper. The center-back wants to leave the club as soon as possible, since he does not want to spend the whole season without playing with Euro 2021 on the horizon.
