Thursday’s biggest stories for the Blues.
Stuttgart defender Antonio Rudiger deals Chelsea blow by admitting he wants to join Arsenal
The Blues have been keeping tabs on the 20-year-old for some time, but it looks as if Rudiger’s heart is elsewhere in the Premier League.
The German is expected to leave the Bundesliga in January for around £7m and clearly wants to join the Gunners.
“I have been following Arsenal since the days of Henry and Bergkamp. I watch videos of Arsenal all the time on YouTube and I often wear the current Alexis Sanchez shirt. My heart beats for Arsenal,” Rudiger was quoted by the Metro.
