Chelsea Chief, Marina Granovskaia Confirms Blues First Double Signing in January 2021

Liverpool are reportedly not interested in Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger or reported Blues target Declan Rice.

Rudiger, 28, is out-of-contract at Stamford Bridge in the summer and has been linked with a move away.

Liverpool are one of the sides that have had reported interest, while Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are two clubs linked with a move in January, when they can agree a pre-contract with the player.

The Germany international has become a key player for the Blues, settling into Thomas Tuchel’s back three system well with the way he defends and is aggressive on the press.

Rudiger has made 169 appearances since his switch from AS Roma, but despite his presence at the back he could leave on a free transfer, but it won’t be to title rivals Liverpool, reports the Liverpool Echo.

As for Rice, the midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea for a few years now, impressing many with his performances for West Ham.

He had previously spent his youth career at Cobham, where he was released at 14 before moving to the London club

The 22-year-old has gone on to captain the Hammers and has become a key player for both his club side and the international team under Gareth Southgate.
