Yes. Antonio Rudiger to have Chelsea medical this week.

Ahead of Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alex Sandro, Chelsea have agreed a £34 million deal to sign Antonio Rudiger from AS Roma.

It’s a done deal according to Sky Sports.
The German will take a medical in Los Angeles this week before being officially announced as a Blues player. The defender could become Chelsea’s first summer signing of the window, ahead of Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alex Sandro.

Rudiger can play in the middle or on either side of Antonio Conte’s 3-5-2 system at Chelsea. At 6 feet 3 inches, he is an imposing presence with surprisingly deft feet.

It’s understood that the Premier League champions have agreed a deal of around £36million for Rudiger but, back in 2014, the Germany centre-back outed himself as a secret fanboy of Chelsea’s bitter London rivals Arsenal.

It remains to be seen if he can adapt to life in the Premier League, but Chelsea will be pretty happy with the acquisition.
