Reports are out claiming that VfL Wolfsburg chief Klaus Allofs has revealed the price VfB Stuttgart are demanding to sell Antonio Rudiger.
The young Germany defender is being linked with a move to Chelsea, while Arsenal have also been mentioned as a potential destination.
Wolfsburg were keen – but not at Stuttgart’s asking price.
“The transfer fee requested for Rüdiger is in our opinion much too high,” said Allofs.
“Eighteen million (euros) is a lot.”
