Tottenham Hotspur: Report shares Antonio Rudiger transfer update -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

According to Football Insider, there has been an update on Tottenham Hotspur’s pursuit of potential 2022 free agent Antonio Rudiger.

The Lowdown: Spurs eye Rudiger move…

As the January transfer window officially opens for business, Tottenham and transfer chief Fabio Paratici have been tipped to target ‘quality players at zero cost’ for manager Antonio Conte (Mundo Deportivo via Sport Witness).

This has led to links with many players who are out of contract at the end of this season and could negotiate free transfers to Spurs for the summer.

Names like Franck Kessie and Alessio Romagnoli have recently been mentioned, as well as Rudiger, with Football Insider now sharing the latest on the latter star.

The Latest: Spurs ‘racing’ to sign Rudiger…

As per the outlet’s information, Tottenham are one of the top clubs ‘racing to sign’ the Germany international, with still no sign of a new deal at Stamford Bridge.

A Blues source has apparently explained that Rudiger will only consider putting pen to paper on fresh terms if he is made one of the club’s most lucrative earners, keeping the door open for Spurs to potentially sign him as things stand.

As reiterated by Football Insider, it is believed that Lilywhites chairman Daniel Levy is also personally ready to back transfer chief Fabio Paratici in his pursuit of the defender. Indeed, the former is apparently willing to table a ‘huge’ salary offer for Rudiger in an effort to convince him to move across London.

The Verdict: Get it done…

Signing Rudiger on a free transfer ahead of Conte’s first full season in 2022/23 would come as a major coup by both Levy and Paratici, especially going by how much the defender has been transformed under Thomas Tuchel.

The 28-year-old, who is currently in his prime, has even been called an ‘animal’ and likened to Manchester City colossus Ruben Dias by pundit Rio Ferdinand (FIVE, via Metro).

In addition, former Liverpool star John Barnes has labelled Rudiger ‘sensational’, with the 49-cap beast possessing a wealth of experience at the top level for both club and country.

Valued at around £31.5m by Transfermarkt, if Spurs can bypass that fee entirely and sign him for nothing, it would arguably come as Paratici’s most brilliant capture yet.
