West Ham United are interested in Chelsea youngster Ruben Loftus-Cheek, according to the Daily Mail.

It has been reported that the Hammers want to sign the 20-year-old on loan despite manager Antonio Conte is a great fan of the English star, who is struggling to find game time as he played just 9′ in Premier League so far.

Conte recently said: “He has the right characteristics to play as a striker. He is physically very strong, he is very good playing with his back to goal, he also has good technique, he sees the goal very well, and he has a good shot. He can play in this role

“It’s right to give opportunities to young players like Loftus with great talent to stay with the first team and help us. It’s the same for Ola Aina.”
