Tottenham target Antonio Rudiger is likely to leave Chelsea this summer upon the expiry of his contract, according to Sky Sports. 

Rudiger, who is close to completing his fifth season with the Blues, is approaching the end of his current deal at Stamford Bridge.

The Germany international, 29, has had a host of suitors from across Europe queuing up to secure a potential coup, which includes Tottenham (Football Insider).

Sky Sports report that Chelsea could be now be resigned to losing him on a free transfer this summer in the wake of restrictions placed on the club due to Russian owner Roman Abramovich. 

The report states that, although Rudiger has not ruled out staying in west London, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain remain in talks with his representatives, but a final decision will not be made until the end of the season.

Unfortunately, there was no mention of Tottenham securing a potential coup in the summer after Rudiger’s impressive showings in a back three this season.

The current sanctions at Chelsea restrict them from signing players or extending contracts, which places Rudiger alongside Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta, who are also heading towards the conclusion of their respective deals (Daily Mail).

While Rudiger may be there for the taking, Spurs should really consider the feasibility of getting such a move done. They would have to offer him a serious amount for him to consider the move, especially with the magnitude of clubs potentially involved.
