Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has previously revealed he’s keen on leaving Chelsea in the January transfer window on another loan deal, but talks of a loan deal died down after a run of games that saw him score four goals in two games back in October.
However, the 22-year-old is still behind Mateo Kovacic and Ross Barkley in the pecking order and reports claim he is reportedly likely to ask for a loan move away from Stamford Bridge in the January transfer window.
According to Gary Jacob at The Times, Crystal Palace and Schalke will revive their interest in the 22-year-old, who is concerned his lack of playing time is hurting his England hopes.
Loftus-Cheek had a successful loan spell with Crystal Palace last season, making 25 appearances in all competitions for the Eagles and this earned him a place in the England squad for the World Cup in Russia.
However, upon his return to Chelsea, Loftus-Cheek is finding it hard to break into Maurizio Sarri’s first team and his only starts for Chelsea this season have come in the UEFA Europa League. He’s managed just three substitute appearances in the Premier League and faces a tough battle to displace Kovacic and Barkley.
