With over thirty Chelsea players out on loan, who is it worth bringing back in to the first team squad?

Nathan Ake- He has played consistently well for Watford this season, the club really could have done with him when they had problems at left-back, definitely worth having Ake in the first team.

Patrick Bamford- Finally getting some game time on loan at Norwich after a terrible time at Crystal Palace in the first half of the season. Named Championship player of the year last year, huge potential, needs to be given a chance rather then being loaning in players such as Pato and Falcao who have added nothing to the squad.

Dominic Solanke- The young England forward has done very well during his loan spell at Vitesse. At just 18 years-old Solanke has huge potential, scoring 7 goals in just 16 appearances in the Eredivisie.

Charly Musonda- Currently out on loan at La Liga side Real Betis, Musonda is very highly rated at Chelsea. The 19 year old has scored one and assisted one in his 8 appearances since making the move in January.

Andreas Christensen- Currently out on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach, the young Dane has played a few first team games for the Blues most notably away at Liverpool when there was ‘that’ Gerrard slip and Chelsea won 2-0. A big strong defender with a bright future ahead.

Juan Cuadrado- Given just a handful of games after his big money signing in January 2015 he was shipped out on loan just 6 months later. Surely needs to be given a proper chance, he has 4 goals and 5 assists for Juventus and is very highly thought of in Turin- it must be for a good reason. Give him some game time!

Players like Izzy Brown, Lewis Baker and Mo Salah all deserve more game time in the Chelsea squad. This is a huge issue that needs to be addressed by the incoming manager.

Having a look at the players needed and the players that aren’t. And instead of constantly loaning them out, these player need to stay or go.

The Telegraph claims that Liverpool, West Ham and a host of German clubs are keen on the Dutch defender Nathan Ake, who has impressed while on loan at Watford this season.

Chelsea will demand more than £10m for Ake if the club decides to sell him, and as we have already reported Watford will try to seal a deal to sign him on a permanent basis.

Ake can play in the centre of defence, midfield or at full-back, then Chelsea are wary of letting him go.

Papy Djilobodji, the 27-year-old, on loan at Werder from Chelsea, has been handed a two-game ban for unsportsmanlike conduct after making a throat-slitting gesture in Werder Bremen‘s 1-1 draw with Mainz on Saturday.

Chelsea are going to fight against Juventus for Belgium international midfielder Radja Nainggolan, according to The Daily Mirror

Antonio Conte wants the ASRoma star as one of his first recruits, with Jon Obi Mikel and Nemanja Matic ready to leave Stamford Bridge.

Nainggolan, who is valued at around £25million, mocked Bianconeri last summer saying: ‘I don’t think it’s necessary to go into a star-studded team to win a trophy. I am in a great side and I want to win with ASRoma. For me it’s better to win one trophy at Roma than 10 at Juventus.’

This could be an advantage for Blues.

Chelsea’s back-up goalkeeper Asmir Begovic has spoken out regarding his disappointment as being a number 2 behind Thibaut Courtois, but has insisted he wants to remain at the club.

The Bosnia-Herzegovina international has revealed that conversations prior to his move from Stoke last summer were promising, but he is unhappy as a back-up after losing his place in the side when Courtois returned from a knee injury at the start of December.

“(Moving to Chelsea) wasn’t as simple as being No.1 or No.2 — I felt I needed a new challenge,”Begovic told The Evening Standard.

“Certain things were put in place, conversations sounded good to me and I wanted to be part of a great club and help the team win trophies.”

“It hasn’t gone as planned, but hopefully that will change and the future will look a bit brighter.”

Edinson Cavani will probably leave Paris Saint Germain next summer and his agent, Fernando Guglielmone, spoke about the Uruguayan player’s future with Italian newspaper Tuttosport.

“In three months everything can change,” he claimed.

“Edinson could stay at PSG, who have an ambitious project, but also he could change.

Ex Chelsea manager José Mourinho is the favourite to succeed to Louis Van Gaal at Manchester United, since the Dutch coach is set to leave Old Trafford at the end of this season after the last poor results.

‘Who do I prefer between Jose Mourinho, Antonio Conte and Massimiliano Allegri? There are three big coaches, but for Edy I’d prefer the attacking game of Conte and Allegri.

With Conte on his way to Chelsea, the message is clear.
