There is still the possibility of more players leaving Chelsea on loan and Ruben Loftus-Cheek has emerged as the latest loan target for a club outside England.
The England international is not keen to leave Chelsea on loan according to reports. The German Bundesliga outfit Schalke 04 are interested in signing the player on loan.
The German club have expressed interest in the midfielder, and they are believed to be one on a list of clubs interested in Loftus-Cheek.
Loftus-Cheek spent last season on loan at Crystal Palace and produced performances that earned him a place in England’s squad for the Russia 2018 World Cup.
However, the player might find a regular place in the team hard to come by due to the acquisition of the likes of Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic.
He is keen to play regularly at the club but the recent acquisitions in the Blues’ midfield will provide stiff competition for places under Sarri.
Regardless, Loftus-Cheek is not interested in a loan move to Schalke 04 in the Bundesliga as he is convinced that he can establish himself at Chelsea.
Reports also suggest that Chelsea may not sanction any loan move for the player away from the club this summer.
