North London giants Arsenal have reportedly been linked with a move for Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek ahead of the upcoming transfer window in January.
England international player Loftus-Cheek has found first team opportunities hard to come by at Stamford Bridge and he’s keen on leaving in search of regular football.
His best run in the first team came while he was at fellow London club Crystal Palace.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek spent the last campaign at Selhurst Park on a season-long loan deal from the Blues and he produced several impressive outings for the Eagles.
His form earned him a spot on the England team for this summer’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.
He was part of the Three Lions squad that finished fourth under manager Gareth Southgate.
Loftus-Cheek wants to retain his place in the England squad and the only way to play club football regularly hence his decision to seek more first team opportunities.
According to the Daily Mail, Crystal Palace are interested in signing him on loan when the January transfer window reopens but the Selhurst Park outfit could face competition from London rivals Arsenal.
He could be a replacement for Arsenal contract rebel Aaron Ramsey who’s reportedly on his way out of the club.
