Arsenal title winner Paul Merson expects Toni Rudiger to leave Chelsea.

With his contract expiring next summer, the Germany international will be able to talk to teams outside England when the winter transfer window opens on January 1.

Merson told the Daily Star: “Chelsea are going to miss Antonio Rudiger when he goes because it will take £60-70m to replace him.

“Rudiger is definitely leaving. If he wanted to sign a new contract he would have done it by now. There's no chance he stays now.

“Teams will be queuing round the block now to sign him, and someone will pay him a lorryload of money to join them."
