Barcelona are purportedly weighing up a January move for Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger.
Barcelona are required to move for another centre-back at the beginning of 2021 as manager Ronald Koeman has few options in that area of the field.
Samuel Umtiti could leave the club in the next transfer window, leaving Barcelona with just Gerard Pique, Clement Lenglet and Ronald Araujo as first-team choices.
As indicated by Sport, the Catalan giants have distinguished Antonio Rudiger as a potential acquisition as the club are still battling to come to an agreement with Manchester City to sign Eric Garcia.
Antonio Rudiger was firmly connected with a move away from Stamford Bridge over the summer, however the transfer window shut with the centre-back still at the club.
The Germany international has not played any single Premier League football game this season, however, and is believed to be excited about a move next transfer window to guarantee that he secures a spot in the Germany squad for the following summer’s European Championships.
Chelsea are purportedly ready to sell Antonio Rudiger toward the beginning of 2021 as they hope to raise funds to move for West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice.
