Roma defender Antonio Rudiger has signed a five-year contract at Chelsea after moving from Roma for a fee that could rise to £34 million.
The 24-year-old German international has agreed to personal terms to become the Premier League champions' second big-name signing of the summer window after the arrival of Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero. Primarily a central defender who can play at right-back, Rudiger will provide manager Antonio Conte with options in defense following Nathan Ake's move to Bournemouth. The former Stuttgart and Borussia Monchegladbach defender spent the last two seasons at Roma, and moves to Stamford Bridge having recently helped Germany win the 2017 Confederations Cup in Russia. On his transfer, Rudiger told Chelsea's official website: "It's a great feeling because not every player has the opportunity to join a huge club like this. I am looking forward to meeting up with my new team-mates and I'm very proud to officially become a Chelsea player." Jul 10 - 3:04 PM
