Former Irons target set for Monaco


One time West Ham target Antonio Rudiger looks set for a move to cash-laden Monaco.

The Hammers – along with Chelsea – showed an interest in the Sttutgart player earlier in the summer but eventually pulled out.

Some sources claimed the Irons had offered around £8 million before both they and the player made it clear he would not be coming to London.

Monaco have since had a £12 million bid snubbed but are set to return with an improved offer
