Former Chelsea assistant boss Gianfranco Zola has revealed some Premier League players that excite him.

The Italian hailed the talents of Leicester City midfielder James Maddison, Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne and Liverpool’s front three of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.

Zola who managed Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek first hand two seasons ago, added the young midfielder to the list of Premier League players that excite him, and believes that if he can bounce back from injury, he’d go a long way in his career.

Zola said: “There are a lot of players right now in the Premier League who are exciting to watch.

“The front players from Liverpool, many others. I like Maddison a lot, from Leicester. I think he’s a player who has got very, very good potential.

“I also like Ruben Loftus-Cheek. I think he’s a player that if he can recover his full physical potential he can become an amazing player.

“But there’s one player who I really think is an amazing player, really a game-changer, is De Bruyne for City.

“Because he knows how to do everything. He can set plays, he can set assists, he can score, he can defend, he can build the play, I think he can become an amazing player.”
