The Germany international previously played in the Premier League with Chelsea, and the prospect of returning to England may be an appealing one for him.
The 29-year-old reportedly feels undervalued as a member of the Real Madrid first-team squad, and it remains unclear whether Spurs can offer him an opportunity to depart from the Spanish club.
The North Londoners are in need of bolstering their defence, and Rudiger would provide an improvement over their current options. The Real Madrid defender is versatile, capable of playing in both a back four and a back three, offering tactical flexibility.
It remains to be seen whether the La Liga champions will be willing to sell Rudiger during the upcoming summer transfer window. The Spanish giants may not want to compromise the depth of their squad, especially since they acquired Rudiger on a free transfer, and he is under contract until the summer of 2026.
Meanwhile, Tottenham will need to secure a top-four finish and secure Champions League qualification if they wish to attract players of Rudiger’s caliber at the end of the season. They should also prioritise retaining key personnel, such as Antonio Conte and Harry Kane, by offering them new contracts.
