Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly planning to make a surprise move Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger this transfer window.
The 27-year-old German has not featured for the Blues since the start of the 2020-21 season with Kurt Zouma, Andreas Christensen and Thiago Silva more preferred by Frank Lampard.
He only made the bench against his side's 3-1 victory over Brighton and hove Albion in their opening game earlier this month and since then, nothing has happened.
SunSport quoting Sky Sports claim the North Londoners are ready to take advantage of his non-playing role at Stamford Bridge to sign him before the transfer window closes.
Sources close to the defender reveals that he is open to a loan move away from the club in a bid to get enough playing time, and also secure his place in the national team ahead of next year's European Championships next summer.
The six-time Premier League winners will however not entertain a loan switch to a direct competitor.
Lampard, during his pre-match conference on Monday, September 28 avoided questions about the player's future despite having two more years on his current deal with them.
The £31 million-rated star has also been linked with a move to West Ham United, Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and even Liverpool. Lampard said:
"I wouldn't assume anything. I wouldn't assume Antonio or any players in the squad (are leaving)."
Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho is looking to add depth to his Spurs backline before this transfer window closes.
