Three EPL sides to battle for £30m-rated Chelsea midfielder


English Premier League sides Bournemouth, West Ham and Newcastle are reportedly set to lock horns over the signature of Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek ahead of the winter transfer window which reopens in coming weeks.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is linked away from the West London side over his inability to secure playing time at the Stamford Bridge under manager Maurizio Sarri.

The England international is yet to make a choice of his destination but he has already got suitors lined up for his signature as they hope to secure his service to strengthen their squad.

Having impressed in the little opportunities given to him by scoring 6 goals in the 6 appearances under his belt, his release clause of about £30 million could increase knowing that he is well valued at the club.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek has only gone down in the pecking order especially with the arrival of Jorginho from Italian Sere A side Napoli.

However, it is unclear if the Blues will sanction a move for the player as they hope to keep a formidable team in the second half of the season to help pursue their title dream.

The West London side are now fourth place in the Premier League table and they are seeking to maintain it at least.
