Experienced Chelsea midfielder pushing for transfer exit to a new club when transfer window opens

When the new season begins, the Chelsea football club and its manager, Thomas Tuchel, will almost certainly continue to be interested in making significant changes to their roster by taking advantage of the transfer window.

After losing both the Carabao Cup final and the English FA Cup final to Liverpool football club this season, the West London club has every right to feel a great deal of disappointment.

On the other hand, Chelsea are now in third place in the Premier League table, and the club will now work toward the objective of ensuring that they will participate in the group stages of the UEFA Champions League the following season.

And now, suggestions that veteran central midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek might be on his way out of the club when the summer transfer market opens could shake the Chelsea football club.

The England international, who is now 26 years old and was elevated to the Chelsea first-team squad in 2015, has been in and out of the team throughout the course of the previous seasons. He was promoted to the squad in 2015

During the 2020-2021 season, the veteran central midfielder was loaned out to Fulham on the club's behalf. During his time at Fulham, he played in 33 matches across all competitions and scored one goal for the team.

The summer before last, Ruben Loftus-Cheek made his return to Chelsea, and he has been quite involved for Chelsea so far in this ongoing 2021/2022 season, scoring one goal and providing five assists in the 38 matches he has played. This season, Chelsea is currently in the middle of the Premier League.

It is claimed that Ruben Loftus-Cheek is rather dissatisfied with the lack of consistent playing time at Chelsea, and sources from The Sun state that he is attempting to leave the club in the summer of 2019.

The rumors also said that Ruben Loftus-Cheek wants to play regular first-team games the next season, and that he is now inching closer to a transfer to join Serie A club Lazio the following summer. The move would take place in the summer of 2019.

It is now unclear whether or not Ruben Loftus-Cheek will be allowed to leave Chelsea and sign for Lazio in time for the start of the next season. The summer transfer window is rapidly approaching.
