another Chelsea hot prospect set to join Tammy Abraham at Roma
Roma eye Loftus-Cheek
Loftus-Cheek would then return over the summer and was handed the odd chance to impress Thomas Tuchel in pre-season.
However, now the campaign has started, we are yet to see the midfielder make a competitive start under the German.
And, with the summer window having around a week left to run, Loftus-Cheek is being linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge.
The club said to be interested in his services are AS Roma, home to former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho and former Chelsea striker, Tammy Abraham who departed Stamford Bridge earlier this month.
Roma’s links to RLC stem from Corriere dello Sport, who suggest that Roma would like to take the Englishman on an initial loan, with an option to buy of 16 million euros.
Whilst the 25-year-old is contracted to Chelsea until 2024, it is hard to see him earning any sort of regular football at the Bridge this year. So, whilst 16 million euros may not be that high, it is probably the best Chelsea are going to get for an injury-prone star who has not had a great season for a while now.
