Ruben Loftus-Cheek was tipped to become a top Premier League player when he began getting first-team minutes at Chelsea.
However, in the last few seasons, the midfielder’s game time has decreased, and as a result he was sent to Crystal Palace on loan for the 2017-18 campaign.
Loftus-Cheek’s positive performances for the Eagles led to a call-up by England manager Gareth Southgate for the World Cup in Russia.
The midfielder added to his tally of caps to make it nine, and many assumed that he would either get more opportunities with Chelsea or join another club.
In the end, the 22-year-old stayed put, and has struggled to make an impression on new manager Maurizio Sarri.
Loftus-Cheek’s recent performance for England against Switzerland indicated that his time on the sidelines is affecting his form.
The midfielder has been on Chelsea’s books for his entire career so far, but is it time to seek pastures new?
