The German centre-back has now entered the final 12 months of his deal with the Champions League holders, who are supposedly struggling to convince him to pen fresh terms.
Thomas Tuchel is hopeful that Rudiger will commit his future to the club, but a recent report claimed that the Blues are prepared to cash in on the former Roma man against the manager's wishes.
Rudiger confirmed that he held talks with Jose Mourinho during the Portuguese's time in charge at Tottenham, and the 28-year-old is said to be keen to remain in London if he leaves Chelsea.
Rudiger has played every minute of the 2021-22 Premier League campaign so far and has won the Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup during his time at Chelsea. body check tags ::
