But there have been suggestions that Tottenham could return for Rudiger in the January transfer window, while the Germany international has also been attracting interest from La Liga giants Barcelona.
Rudiger, though, has insisted that he is happy with his situation at the club, pouring cold water on any speculation over his immediate future at Chelsea. (h/t Football.london)
“I’m satisfied with how the situation has developed in the past weeks. Now I see myself as a permanent part of the team. I had a tough time, so I also checked other transfer options but I received positive signals from the coaching team.”
This comes after Germany national team manager Joachim Low had hinted that the 27-year-old could be on the lookout for a new club come January, indicating that there has been a change in his stance in recent weeks. (h/t Football.london)
