Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is ready to avert his attention to Roma defender Antonio Rudiger and is preparing a £35 million offer for the centre-half, according to The Daily Mail.
The 23-year-old has impressed since leaving Stuttgart for the Italian capital and played an important role in a successful 2015-16 campaign for the Stadio Olimpico team.
A serous injury prevented Rudiger from playing a role in Euro 2016 with Germany, but the abrasive enforcer has amassed 11 senior caps for the world champions over the last 24 months.
