Jose Mourinho’s Roma add Chelsea midfielder to January wish-list

Posted by

Jose Mourinho is expected to delve into the winter market as the Portuguese manager attempts to reinforce his stuttering Roma squad.

Although several players have been linked with a move to Rome, the latest name understood to be on Mourinho’s winter wish-list is Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Loftus-Cheek, 25, has started just two Premier League matches under manager Thomas Tuchel so far this season.

Seemingly out-of-favour with the Blues, a January move for the English midfielder could very well be on the cards.

That’s according to a recent report from Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport, who claims the 25-year-old is highly thought of by Mourinho.

Since making his senior Chelsea debut all the way back in 2014, Loftus-Cheek has gone on to feature in just 91 matches, in all competitions, directly contributing to 25 goals, along the way.
