Marina Granovskaia, Chelsea are ready to offer both Antonio Rudiger and Ruben Loftus-Cheek to West Ham in order to land Declan Rice, according to the Transfer Window podcast.
Ian McGarry said: “It’s our information that Antonio Rudiger, who has been the main casualty of the early season in terms of losing his place, has been offered to West Ham United as part of the deal to bring Rice to Stamford Bridge.
“Rudiger, the Germany international, is available [elsewhere] on loan.
“Chelsea are okay about selling him permanently, however Rudiger himself is thought to be a little bit indecisive about moving across London. He would prefer instead to stay for a year and prove himself.
“There’s another player involved in this proposal to West Ham, and that’s the England international midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
“He’s in a similar situation to Rudiger in that he’s not in Lampard’s plans, and he would prefer to be playing football in a 12 month period which will culminate in Euro 2020.”
