According to The Athletic's Ornstein, Everton has cooled off his interest in Chelsea defender Rudiger.
Reports claim that Everton was interested in renting Rudiger this summer, but Chelsea’s asking price was too high.
Chelsea hope to get a loan fee of 5 million pounds, in addition to Everton also need to fully cover Rudiger's salary.
Tottenham, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Roma and Barcelona also had scandals with Rudiger, but the players did not leave Chelsea this summer.
Rudiger, 27, joined Chelsea from Rome in the summer of 2017. His contract with the team will expire in the summer of 2022.
