Antonio Rudiger, a former defender for Chelsea, reportedly wants to hear Liverpool’s offer in order to get paid more at Real Madrid.
Werder Bremen stuns Bayern at home thanks to a fantastic goal from Mitchell Weiser.
The Reds are seeking to recruit a new center-back during the next transfer window since Joel Matip may become a free agent at the end of the current campaign.

But the fact that Joe Gomez has to step in at left back indicates they need to bring in another central defender.
The Spanish daily Nacional claims that one of the players Liverpool is considering adding to Anfield is former Chelsea defender Rudiger.
