Joe Giddens/PA Archive Mourinho looks to strengthen his defence in order to compete in the Champions League this season.

Chelsea have submitted a £12.8 million bid for Germany international Antonio Rudiger, according to the Express.  The Stuttgart star has had interest from a number of top European sides including Porto and Wolfsburg but has expressed a desire to join the Premier League Champions.

Jose Mourinho is looking to boost his side's squad with the aim to be able to compete in all competitions next season and with Real Madrid's Rafael Varane looking unobtainable the Stuttgart centre half would give him a talented central defender.
