Spurs consider late bid for Rudiger

Tottenham are considering making a late bid to sign Antonio Rudiger from Chelsea

The German defender has fallen out of favour under Frank Lampard, and, with the arrival of Thiago Silva at the club, his game time at Stamford Bridge may be limited in the coming season.

They have previously been reluctant to sell players to their direct Premier League rivals, but give the chance to recoup some of the money they have spent on transfer fees this summer, they may relent in this case if the price is right.

Spurs have been in the market for a replacement for Jan Vertonghen, who left the club on a free transfer at the end of the season, eventually joining Benfica.

It was during Chelsea’s game with Spurs last season that Rudiger caused a storm claiming he had been racially abused by Tottenham supporters. A subsequent police investigation found no evidence to back-up his claims.

Rudiger did not play in the Carabao Cup match between the two clubs on Tuesday night.
