Since Thomas Tuchel took the reins at Chelsea last season, Rudiger has evolved into a fixture in the Blues backline.


The centre-back has only not featured in one Premier League game so far this season for Chelsea and has been key to them having the best defensive record in the league.



However, Rudiger’s future at Stamford Bridge is under the scanner as he is yet to commit to new contract at the club.


The defender’s current deal expires in the summer and his situation at Chelsea has put several top clubs across Europe on alert, including the likes of Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Juventus, Bayern Munich.



Chelsea’s Premier League rivals Manchester City are interested in the German, but it has also emerged Liverpool are keen.


The Reds are being kept up-to-date about how Rudiger’s contract negotiations are progressing at Chelsea.



With the 28-year-old having entered his final year of contract at Chelsea, the race for his signature is now firmly on.
