According to reports in The Sun on Sunday on June 10, Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek still appears to be uncertain on his future with the west London club after saying that he won’t decide whether he is staying or not until after the World Cup, and we at Football Fancast suggested that Liverpool should move for him after their Nabil Fekir move fell through.
The 6ft 3in England international has just returned from a season-long loan spell with Crystal Palace where he was handed the regular first-team minutes that he didn’t get under Blues boss Antonio Conte the previous year, and the future of the Italian could be crucial to whether he commits his future to the West London outfit or decides to move on to pastures new.
Meanwhile, Reds manager Jurgen Klopp, who has been urged to sign a 27-year-old World Cup attacker, now has a decision to make himself with a deal for Fekir looking to be dead in the water, and the German needs to decide whether he is going to sign an alternative or stick with what he has got and return to sign the Frenchman again in the future.
Loftus-Cheek would certainly be a versatile addition seeing as he could fill either the position that Philippe Coutinho had or act as cover/competition for Sadio Mane on the left wing.
We asked Liverpool fans to vote on our poll to see whether they would like their club to sign the impressive 22-year-old, but 58% said they wouldn’t.
The Chelsea midfielder has certainly shown for both Palace and England that he has the skill and quality to link up brilliantly with the likes of Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino, but his relative inexperience and genreally not being as good as Fekir is clearly putting Reds supporters off.
