Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly still in the running to sign Antonio Rudiger from London rivals Chelsea, despite speculation that AC Milan are now leading the race.

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly still in the running to sign Antonio Rudiger from Chelsea on deadline day.

The 27-year-old has only featured in one of Frank Lampard's matchday squads so far this season and is yet to be handed a single minute of action amid speculation that he could leave the club.

AC Milan are leading the race for his signature and are reportedly closing in on a season-long loan deal, but Sky Sports News claims that Spurs and Roma could still hijack the transfer.

Chelsea, who are keen to tie Rudiger down to a new contract before letting him leave on loan, would prefer to send him to a foreign club rather than strengthening one of their Premier League rivals.

The Germany international has two years remaining on his current contract at Stamford Bridge but has fallen behind Kurt Zouma, Andreas Christensen and Thiago Silva in the pecking order this season.

Rudiger is eager to leave in search of more regular football as he aims to secure a place in Germany's squad for the European Championships next year.
