Chelsea are after Noriwch goalie John Ruddy and reports suggest that Canaries have rejected second bid from the Londoners are they want to hold on to former Everton goalie. However, Chelsea seem determined to sign the England international and may move for the player with a third bid.
John Ruddy missed much of last season because of injuries but since joining Norwich in 2010, he has been one of the most consistent goal keepers in the premier league and it is understandable why Norwich want him at the club next season.
On the other hand, Jose Mourinho wants to add tough competition for goal keeping places and wants to put pressure on number 1 goalie Petr Cech who will have to fight hard for his place if John Ruddy does arrive at Stamford Bridge this summer.
Chelsea’s first offer for the England international was rejected last week and now coming up with an improved bid has not satisfied the asking price of Norwich as well.
Ruddy joined Everton back in 2005 and since then he played for 9 clubs on loan before finally putting pen to paper to seal a deal with Norwich. The goalie is considered very significant for Canaries’s plans next year and Chelsea will have to pay big to sign him.
