Chelsea want €25m for AC Milan target Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Chelsea reportedly want €25 million for Ruben Loftus-Cheek who has attracted interest from AC Milan

The 27-year-old has been with the Blues since joining their academy at the age of eight. 

He made his senior debut in 2014 but has struggled to hold down a regular spot in the team.

The midfielder has made 145 appearances in all competitions, netting 13 goals. 

With the club bringing in several top players in January, the competition for places in the team is intense. 

Loftus-Cheek has played only two top-flight matches this year and his current contract runs out in 2024.

Chelsea have the option to extend it by another year but are open to selling him if they receive a €25m offer, as per

Loftus-Cheek has shown glimpses of his quality, but he doesn’t look to have a future in west London. A move to Serie A could enable him to play more regularly.

The Englishman has mostly played as a central or attacking midfielder but has also been used as a centre-back and wing-back.

However, €25m is a sizeable fee and may be beyond Milan’s reach.

Loftus-Cheek is also on €135,000-a-week wages at Stamford Bridge, which could be a stumbling block to a deal.
