Kostas Manolas&8217; agent cast doubt on his client joining Chelsea this week and now, the Blues are reigniting their interest in his Roma centre back partner Antonio Rudiger, report Sports Mediaset

Despite signing David on Deadline Day, Antonio Conte is still reportedly keen on adding another top quality centre back and Rudiger is somebody who Chelsea have been trailing for a long while.

Missing through injury and still sidelined at present, 23-year-old Rudiger is an injury prone defender but apparently, Conte is still keen despite these concerns.

Actually meeting Rudiger’s agent over the summer, the German already came close to signing for the Blues but now it appears he’ the man Conte wanted after all.

Having won 11 senior international caps with Germany since making a debut against Poland back in May 2014, it is believed that a fee of around €30 million would be substantial enough to tempt Serie A giants Roma into a sale.
