Napoli midfielder set for Chelsea again

Chelsea midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah is set to return to the club after a short lived loan spell with Serie A giants Napoli, according to the Daily Star.

The England under-21 star has only received five minutes of first-team action under boss Mauricio Sarri, who revealed he had never heard of the player he made the temporary switch on deadline day.

Blues manager Jose Mourinho is said to be frustrated with the lack of action given to the player, and would rather recall him.

The recall would see the midfielder, who has also played for Burnley and Reading on similar deals, return to Stamford Bridge six months earlier than had originally been expected.

He joined the Chelsea academy at the age of 10 after previously coming through the youth ranks at West London rivals Fulham, and has also been loaned to the likes of Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest during his short career.
