Tottenham are set to turn their attentions to Antonio Rudiger as their move for Milan Skriniar stalls.

Rudiger, Sportsmail understands, is emerging as a serious alternative to Inter Milan defender Skriniar as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his options in central defence.

Rudiger's days under Chelsea boss Frank Lampard are numbered after being frozen out during the start of the season.

The Germany international hasn't played a single minute of club football so far and hasn't even been named in the squad for three of Chelsea's four games this season.
