Antonia Rudiger has completed his move to Chelsea football club from Italian club, Roma in a five-year deal in the region of £34million.


Rudiger is the second signing for Chelsea this summer.


The 24-year-old, German international, will wear jersey No.2, and is delighted to have made the move to the Premier League champions.


"It’s a great feeling because not every player has the opportunity to join a huge club like this," he told the club's official website. "I am looking forward to meeting up with my new team-mates and I’m very proud to officially become a Chelsea player," he said.



Rudiger represents a positive move for the Blues after a difficult summer in the transfer market so far.



Manchester United beat them to top striker target Romelu Lukaku while Juventus continue to play hardball over a fee for defender Alex Sandro.



But Rudiger's arrival, alongside Willy Caballero - a free transfer arrival following his release by Manchester City - should lighten manager Antonio Conte's mood.



Monaco's Tiemoue Bakayoko is expected to be the next man through the door in a move that should allow Nemanja Matic to move to United in a deal worth up to £40m.
