RB Leipzig’s Joško Gvardiol a potential replacement for Antonio Rüdiger at Chelsea

Premier League side Chelsea are interested in signing RB Leipzig defender Joško Gvardiol as a replacement for Antonio Rüdiger, according to Sky Germany.

Thomas Tuchel is a ‘big fan’ of Gvardiol, who has impressed in his first season in the Bundesliga.

However, the 20-year-old is happy at RB Leipzig whilst there has been no contact between Chelsea and the Croatian’s representatives.

Tuchel confirmed on Sunday that Rüdiger has decided to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season when his contract expires with the Germany international expected to join Real Madrid, who are leading the race.
