Chelsea and Roma have agreed a deal for central defender Antonio Rudiger, Sky sources understand.

Rudiger helped Germany win the Confederations Cup in Russia earlier this month. It is thought the player will take a medical in Los Angeles this week, with the transfer figure potentially rising to £34m.

The 24-year-old moved to Roma from Stuttgart initially on a season-long loan deal in August 2015 before making the move permanent the following season for 7.6m.

Personal terms still have to be discussed but it appears that Rudiger will become a Chelsea player ahead of the new Premier League season.
