Chelsea are targeting a move for John Ruddy

The England international has been a brick wall in goal this season for the Canaries who are currently in the play-off stages of the season.

The goalkeeper, who’s suggested worth is around £10m, has previously been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge with the side having made a £5m bid for Ruddy back in 2013.

However, a move for the 28-year-old would only materialise if second choice keeper Petr Cech moved away from the club in order to get more first team action due to the recent emergence of 24-year-old Thibaut Courtois.

The Czech Republic international has reportedly attracted interest from Premier League rivals Liverpool and Arsenal as well as Turkish side Besiktas and a summer move away from the club is looking more and more likely.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho revealed on Friday that he did not want to let Cech go but rumours suggest that the 32-year-old shot stopper is seeking a move away from the London based club in order to get more game time.

Alex Neil’s Norwich City play Ipswich in the reverse fixture of the play-off semi-final on Saturday which ended all square at Portman Road, thanks to goals from Jonny Howson and Paul Anderson.
