Monaco targeting Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus Cheek

Chelsea’s 22 years old midfielder who was earlier in the week a reported target for Dortmund is now being tipped to join Monaco on a season-long loan.

Monaco who sold Fabinho to Liverpool are eyeing Ruben Loftus-Cheek as a replacement but in form of a season-long loan. The former league one champions desire a tackler and ball carrier, a duty Loftus-Cheek cheek excelled at while on-loan at Palace.

The loan move will be beneficial to the youngster in terms of playing opportunities, a challenge he has been made to confront after racking up enough minutes last season on loan with Crystal Palace and also distinguished himself. 

However, the return to his parent club, Chelsea haven’t gone as planned because of the talent iavailable in their midfield. The Blues who have a new manager in place have bolstered the midfield with the acquisition of Jorginho and Kovacic. 

Already at the club are Kante, Berkeley and Drinkwater. Luiz can also play in that position when required. So playing time will be hugely limited to the Englishman after featuring in the World Cup for his country. 

Respite has come in the form of Monaco. A club willing to give him opportunities to hone is trade. Also, if he joins the Ligue one club, he will be pushing himself and the team to wrest the trophy from the cuffs of PSG.
