While Chelsea’s Reece James and Mason Mount are often linked with the Spanish club, Loftus-Cheek is a surprising addition to their list of potential targets.

There are rumors circulating that Chelsea’s recent change in ownership resulting in a shift in the club’s approach to contracts. With players like Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen leaving as free agents, the club hesitant to let contracts run down to their final twelve months. There are also reports that they may need to offload some players in the upcoming summer transfer window.

He has been also struggling to establish himself as a regular starter under various managers at the club. As a result, a move away from Stamford Bridge could be beneficial for the 25-year-old’s career progression.
