Tottenham unlikely to resurrect interest in Antonio Rudiger in January

According to Football Insider (h/t Football.london), Tottenham Hotspur are likely to refrain from making a move for Chelsea star Antonio Rudiger in January after failed attempts to land him in the summer.

Tottenham had been desperate to recruit a new centre-back all summer long and were keen on making a move for Rudiger towards the end of the transfer window. (h/t Sky Sports)

Post that, Tottenham did bring in Welsh centre-back Joe Rodon from EFL Championship outfit Swansea City. However, there were talks of the Lilywhites returning for Rudiger in the January transfer window. (h/t Football.london)

But, as per the latest reports, that seems highly unlikely, with Spurs considering a move for the 27-year-old financially unfeasible. (h/t Football.london)

Chelsea were reportedly looking for a multi-million pound loan fee as well as demanding Tottenham pay 100% of Rudiger’s £150,000 per week salary for the duration of the deal in the summer. These demands would take the overall cost of a loan deal over £10m in total, which is a concern for Tottenham. (h/t Football.london)

While Rodon has arrived, the Welshman is ineligible to play in the Carabao Cup having already represented Swansea. He is also not part of the Europa League squad either, having been signed post the final date of submission of the squad. However, he could be drafted into the roster in January, should we make it to the knockouts.

But with concerns over the form of Davinson Sanchez, there could be an outside chance that Jose Mourinho might look to sign another defender. However, a move for Rudiger seems an unlikely event.
