Thomas Tuchel pushing hard for Antonio Rüdiger

RMC Sport report that German tactician Thomas Tuchel is pushing hard to sign Chelsea central defender Antonio Rüdiger before Monday’s deadline.

The London club still want a sale rather than a loan with option to buy, and the latter formula is the only deal that Les Parisiens can afford to do during this window.

Tuchel has spoken with Rüdiger on the phone on several occasions to entice the player to come – Lampard and Rüdiger have also mutually agreed that a departure is best for the 27-year-old.
