Germany international Antonio Rudiger is expected to leave Chelsea before the transfer deadline after falling out-of-favour under Frank Lampard.
The centre-back has been a regular starter for the Blues over the past few years, but he has played no part for the club this term.
According to The Telegraph, Rudiger is expected to pursue a fresh challenge away from the Blues before the transfer deadline on October 5.
Rudiger has been a regular with the German national side and he is concerned that the lack of game time could cost his place for Euro 2020.
A return to the Serie A has been touted for Rudiger with former club AS Roma keen on landing his services, possibly on an initial loan.
