Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek hasn’t featured for the Blues since rupturing his achilles in Chelsea’s end of season friendly against New England Revolution last May.

The 24-year-old is now close to returning to action and has been involved in the first team’s training recently.

Loftus-Cheek was one of Chelsea’s best players before his injury last season, and Chelsea boss Frank Lampard can’t wait to have him back.

Lampard has revealed that he wants the England international to try to rack up to 15-20 goals a season.

He told the Daily Mail: “From the conversations we’ve had, he wants it all.

“I remember watching Ruben score a hat-trick in the Europa League against BATE Borisov in October 2018.

“A couple were my kind of goals — six-yard box, bang. Nothing to shout about but I liked it.

“Ruben’s never been a rack-up-numbers man but I’ll definitely speak to him. Can he get 15, 20 goals in a season? He’s got that in him.”
