You can’t fault Ruben Loftus-Cheek of being patient at Chelsea, yet to start in the Premier League and yet has performed excellently when given the chance to come on in the league or in the Europa League – scoring five goals in his nine Blues appearances this season.
However, according to the Telegraph Ruben Loftus-Cheek will use tonight’s game against Wolves as an indication of whether or not he is seen as a first team starter by manager Maurizio Sarri, if not, then he may look to engineer a January transfer window exit, likely to be a loan move.
Blues fans are desperate to see the 22-year old given more of a chance after an excellent last season at Crystal Palace and in the summer with England at the World Cup, and his goal against Fulham last weekend will only fuel the need for Loftus-Cheek to get more chances.
December is a busy period for Chelsea with eight fixtures to go before 2019 kicks-in and no doubt the Blues are going to need all of their strength in-depth to get them through the month with positive results. Ruben Loftus-Cheek can use his good form when given opportunities mixed with the amount of upcoming fixtures to make more of a case to start or leave for more football.
The Telegraph also say that Chelsea are not keen to lose one of their midfield options, but are also appreciative of Loftus-Cheek’s patience and work ethics while waiting for opportunities.
Crystal Palace, Newcastle, Bournemouth, West Ham and German side Schalke are reportedly all keen if Ruben Loftus-Cheek is available in January.
