Chelsea midfielder gets two options to leave Stamford Bridge

Timothy Aiyeku



Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus Cheek has been a subject of speculations over a move away from the Stamford Bridge ahead of the January transfer window.

This is coming up again because of the player’s lack of appearances in the Maurizio Sarri team which is expected to continue because of the competition in the team.

Chelsea have got Eden Hazard, Ross Barkley, Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Cesc Fabregas and others as options in the middle which makes Loftus Cheek an option and not a major choice in the team.

It is not a fault to say that the only player who has got starting place sealed in the middle is the World Cup winner and France international, Kante.

The Italian manager has made it clear that he will only make use of two midfielders which makes it a complicated issue for Loftus Cheek in finding a permanent place in the team.

However, should the player decide to leave the club on a loan move, he has got Crystal Palace and West Ham as suitors to make his decision knowing that he would not be allowed to leave the Stamford Bridge on a permanent deal.

The 22-year-old would no doubt be an important part of both teams should he join any of them and will most definitely have the starting and regular appearance he has clamoured for.
