Africa Today News, New York understands that Rudiger has entered the final months of his current contract and will be able to sign a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs from January.
Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are believed to be monitoring the situation of the German defender.
It is understood that talks between Rudiger and Chelsea have stalled.
But Tuchel insists he is relaxed about the player’s future.
‘I hope that they find a solution but it’s not only between coaches and players.
‘It’s between the club and the player’s agent.
‘He plays excellently for a long time – very consistent [and] at a very high level. I feel him very calm, very focused and it’s obviously not a distraction for him.
‘So give things time – sometimes it needs a bit longer, sometimes things get very fast. There’s no news from my side,’ Tuchel said.
