Speaking to the Evening Standard Chelsea forward Bertrand Traore, now at Ajax, slammed the Blues loaning system, claiming he didn’t feel trusted by the club:

“I felt, and feel, that I am ready for Chelsea: I don’t see the loan [picture] overall. Why did I play so much in pre-season?

 “Why was I allowed to participate so often under Guus Hiddink [last season]? Why do young players get no real chance at Chelsea?

 “It’s good for the composition of the squad if it is also home to a couple of talented youngsters.”

Andreas Christensen has only played three games for Chelsea first team and was then sent on loan to Borussia Monchengladbach, where he is impressing with his good performances.

This is the main reason why Antonio Conte is keen to sign him back and doesn’t want the Danish youngster to remain on loan to the German side or to sign for other big clubs around Europe.

Chelsea need to revamp their defense and are desperately looking for a centre-back: Christensen could be the low-cost, home-grown, perfect solution to try to solve this issue.

Chelsea loanee Andreas Christensen claims he prefers Bundesliga’s football than Premier League one.

“I have only played one match in the Premier League so far, but I obviously trained with my Chelsea team-mates on a daily basis. It is still a different comparison to make, though. Perhaps the Premier League is a bit more organised defensively,”  the Danish defender, on loan to Borussia Monchengladbach for the second year, explains.

“It is very difficult to create chances in the Premier League. The Bundesliga is the more entertaining league. Almost every game is [played] at a breathtaking pace, up and down, back and forth, attack and counter-attack.”

Chelsea loan player technical coach Eddie Newton confirmed Tammy Abraham is firmly on the radar of the club while on loan to Bristol City and believes the striker’s mentality could see him break into Antonio Conte’s plans at Stamford Bridge.

Abraham is impressing in the beginning of this loan spell, having scored already 10 goals in 13 appearances:

“We are keeping a close eye on him but the thing I like about Tammy is that he takes on board good advice, works and puts it into action as well. I see a bright future for the young man, I really do,’”Newton said about the young striker.

“Tammy is a very driven young man. The way he articulates himself, you can tell that this boy knows what he wants and where he wants to go to. He knows he has to be patient, but he is not patient at the same time.

“You’re always confident with certain players because of the way they mentally apply themselves toward training and to games, he just wants to score goals and to win. He’s a winner.

“Our job is to guide him because he will have dips. He’s a young player and will have a dip during the season. He has started on fire at Bristol City and we are very pleased.

“We are also very aware that it is not going to be plain sailing all the way through the season.”
