Chelsea might consider making a move for Paris Saint Germain defender Marquinhos if they lose Rudiger, MySportDab reports.
The Blues are already making plans in motion as they are likely to lose any of their defender for free when the season comes to an end.
Marquinhos has been seen as that perfect replacement for any out going defender who they fail to extend their contract beyond the current season.
Chelsea are facing issues of keeping two of their best defenders who will be running out of contract at the end of this campaign.
All talks for extension are not going well at the moment with Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen yet to agree on a new contract which will keep them at Stamford Bridge.
Blues keen on PSG defender who they might be tempted to go after if things with their own defenders fails to work out before end of the season.
Chelsea are considering a move for Paris Saint-Germain defender Marquinhos, according to reports coming from Fichajes.
With Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen yet to sign new contracts at Stamford Bridge, the Blues are ready to raid Parc des Princes for a proven Brazil international.
This could see them go after the player who will be the perfect cover if they leave as they won’t be looking to waste no time in finding another defender.
Pau Torres is also one of those defenders they are currently linked with as they will also be looking to make their move to sign him and the Brazilian at once.
Thomas Tuchel earlier told Chelsea that they should do whatever it takes to make sure Antonio Rudiger stays with the club beyond the season.
Things have failed to work out due to his demands for salary increase which the club are yet to meet which has led to them already looking to sign Marquinhos.
