Chelsea news: Fan favourite linked with shock £25M move to Borussia Dortmund

Ruben Loftus-Cheek has not featured for Chelsea the way he would have liked this season. With the competition in the team, it doesn’t seem like the situation will change anytime soon.

Kante and Jorginho seem to have nailed down the two spot in the Chelsea midfield with the remaining spot going to one of Barkley, Kovacic or Ruben Loftus-Cheek. The former duo are favoured to get the nod above the latter.

On this note there was to be a crunch talk between the club representatives and the player’s agent to address his role in the team but it is obvious the player is surplus to requirement hence why he is being linked to Bundesliga club.

The midfielder is reportedly set to join Borussia Dortmund on the evidence that he is not in his Sarri’s plan going forward so moving to a new club may just be what is right for his development after appearing four times for England at the World Cup.

Dortmund are thought to be interested in adding quality to their team after their near escape from defeat in DFB Pokal against second tier side. A match they eventual won in extra time.

Although Dortmund new coach Lucien Favre has bought well in the transfer market by adding quality to an already good side but he is willing to make a swoop for Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

The Chelsea midfielder who returned from a season-long loan from Crystal Palace is thought to be valued in the region of £25m.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek, 22, will have a hard time breaking into the Dortmund set up but with his strength, build and determination he should be able to carve a place for himself in the team.
