According to the English publication, Football London, Chelsea have no intention of allowing Ruben Loftus-Cheek to leave Stamford Bridge in the upcoming winter transfer session.
Although the 22-year-old midfielder struggled for the regular playing time at the beginning of the season, he has shown some glimpses of his potential Blues’ players over the past couple of months.
The England international has featured in two Europa League clashes, having notched a hat-trick against BATE Borisov. Meanwhile, he added three more appearances in the Premier League and scored a goal against Burnley.
Loftus-Cheek promising performance has caught the eye of West Ham United, who are reportedly lining up a potential January swoop for the powerful midfielder.
The Hammers hope to land the player on loan until the end of the season, as Pedro Obiang and Robert Snodgrass both failed to impress under Manuel Pellegrini.
However, Maurizio Sarri has blocked the eventual sale following Loftus-Cheek’s recent displays, as he looks to entrust him with a more prominent role in the forthcoming future.
