Reports are out claiming that Chelsea have been told to up their bid for VfB Stuttgart defender Antonio Rudiger.
Stuttgarter Zeitung reported that Chelsea have already made their opening bid for the 22 year-old – to the tune of €10 million.
However, Stuttgart rate Rudiger at €18 million and have told Chelsea to try again.
Chelsea’s move for Rudiger is expected to see young defensive duo Kenneth Omeruo and Tomas Kalas move on.
Antonio Rudiger is also linked with a move to Arsenal.
