Rudy played for Hoffenheim from 2010 from 2017 before moving on to Bayern München and then Schalke. The 30-year-old returned to Hoffenheim on loan for the 2019/20 campaign, and he is now being linked with a return to Rhein-Neckar-Arena once more.
Bild claims that Rudy has been identified as a transfer target by Hoffenheim coach Sebastian Hoeness and director of football Alexander Rosen as they look to add more experience to the squad.
Hoffenheim would prefer a new loan deal, but a permanent switch to Rhein-Neckar Arena is not entirely out of the question. However, with Rudy currently earning a reported €6 million per season, he would have to take a huge pay cut for a deal to happen.
Rudy started at right-back in Schalke 04's Bundesliga opener, which saw them suffer an embarrassing 8-0 defeat against Bayern München.
