Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Antonio Rüdiger. With three DFB players in the selection, national coach Joachim Löw has a special eye on Chelsea. But soon there could be a way.
Antonio Rüdiger could soon take off his “blues” jersey and move to another club. As the “Guardian” reports, Chelsea is ready to hand over Rüdiger. Accordingly, the club has doubts about the future of the national player in London.
The day before, he was missing from the selection against Liverpool for performance reasons. Coach Frank Lampard explained his decision: “We have five central defenders in the club, I can’t put three on the bench. I have to choose the squad based on training, situation and opponents and that was my first choice today . “
Strong competition, opportunities in emerging markets unclear
According to “Sky Sports”, Rüdiger would have thought about his future after the decision. Because the 27-year-old needs assignments to be in the DFB selection at the EM next summer. At Chelsea, he currently has Andreas Christensen and Kurt Zouma in front of him, alongside newcomer Thiago Silva. Then there is Fikayo Tomori, a home-grown “blues” that should become more important in the coming years.
Should Rüdiger be absent from the Carabao Cup against Barnsley on Wednesday, a move towards the end of the transfer window on October 5 is more likely.
