As per one of the latest reports by Metro, Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has made up his mind and is willing to stay at the Stamford Bridge. Loftus-Cheek was heavily linked with a move to Schalke on loan after he impressed during his loan spell with Crystal Palace last term.
He garnered 24 appearances in the Premier League for Eagles, scoring 2 goals and registering 3 assists in the process. Despite the tremendous amount of competition for a regular place in the starting line-up of Maurizio Sarri, the 22-year-old is desirous to fight hard to impress his manager.
Loftus-Cheek started on the bench in Chelsea’s convincing 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town last weekend at the Kirklees Stadium and he replaced Ross Barkley in the second-half. Impliedly, he has chances of featuring against the Blues’ arch-rivals Arsenal on Saturday.
Tiemoue Bakayoko completed his loan move to AC Milan earlier today and owing to the injury to Cesc Fabregas, it goes without saying that the English international’s chances of plying his trade in the coming weeks are quite high. If he gets the opportunity, he needs to grab it with both hands to nail down his spot in Sarri’s side.
