Chelsea have completed the signing of Antonio Rudiger from Roma for a fee believed to be worth £34 million.
Chelsea showed interest in the centreback last and came back with an offer, which was accepted last week.
Antonio Rudiger spent just two seasons at Roma , before signing a five-year deal at Chelsea.
“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.”
Part of Germany’s Confederations Cup winning team, Rudiger has made 17 appearances for the national team.
