Fabrizio Romano reveals the talented chelsea promising Midfielder might just have alerted the Scouting eyes of Lazio as they are interested in getting him on loan for next season shortly after appointing his former boss as the club manager for next season.
Loftus Cheek enjoyed his most productive Chelsea season under Sarri where he produced 10 goals in 40 appearances in the 2018/19 season and he got his hands on the Europa League trophy.
Fabrizio Romano in his Tweet Confirmed Lazio interest in the young Chelsea Midfield prodigy;
“Chelsea will receive €28.5m for Fikayo Tomori leaving the club on a permanent deal. AC Milan are also negotiating with Olivier Giroud agents, while Lazio are interested in Ruben Loftus-Cheek on loan. Contacts ongoing with Hakimi agent but PSG still pushing.”
Despite Thomas Tuchel numerous praises on the player while on loan with Fulham last season a move back to chelsea would be very disastrous to his already promising career as there would be no room for him in the double Midfield pivot Thomas Tuchel would likely implement next season.
Although a move for Declan rice is very much on the card for chelsea a return to chelsea would be very much away from the mind of Loftus Cheek as chelsea are well stacked in Midfield and currently do not need a player of his profile a move to lazio would help in greatly in getting the game time he needs as Maurizio Sarri already Understands how best to use him after previously managing him at chelsea.
This is what some chelsea fans said Regarding Lazio possible loan move for Loftus Cheek;
@Cfcwaldo – “If its a loan, nothing could be more perfect. Sarri knows RLC and will give him the perfect chance to find his form. If its good enough to bring back to Chelsea, Tuchel can decide in next season’s pre season. If not, he can enjoy a good career in Italy. Win win for all parties”
@Mercuryblake_ – “Sell him he was never good enough for Chelsea anyway.. injury prone and very lazy player”.
@zealous_zola_ – “He will do well under Sarri”.
@prochorei – “That’s Sarri right there. Let’s see if they’ll ask for J5 too. 😁”.
While many fans agree a move to lazio would be the best decision he would make right now in his career many see that as a possible way chelsea can totally get rid of him as they believe he is not up to the required standards chelsea needs.
