Stuttgart defender, Antionio Rudiger is rated as one of the best young centre backs in world football and has been tipped for a move to the Premier League with Chelsea and Arsenal both eyeing up the 20-year-old.
Chelsea are said to favour a move for Rudiger but the young defender has a secret to share which may change the fortunes and the future of the Stuttgart defender. Speaking to the Metro, Rudiger revealed that he is a Gunner at heart.
“I have always dreamed of the Premier League,” he said.
“I have been following Arsenal since the days of Henry and Bergkamp. I watch videos of Arsenal all the time on YouTube and I often wear the current Alexis Sanchez shirt.
‘My heart beats for Arsenal.”
A £7m move in January could be off the cards for Chelsea should Wenger look to Rudiger for defensive reinforcements. After all, his heart beats for Arsenal.
