Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri is keeping silent over the possibility of Nigerian winger, Victor Moses getting a loan deal that will take him out of an ongoing nightmare at Stamford Bridge.
Moses has not been in Sarri’s plans since the Italian gaffer took over at The Blues for the current season, such that speculation is raging like wildfire that the former Super Eagles star will be allowed another loan exit in January.
However, footballlive.ng can report that, while Sarri has stopped short of saying anything about the next line of action for Moses, despite the gaffer speaking at length over one of the winger’s rivals, Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
While Moses is struggling for a place in The Blues’ mainframe, 22-year-old Loftus-Cheek has found his form and had a recent hat-trick to show in the Europa League, such that Sarri is now eager to keep the youngster.
Loftus-Cheek impressed on loan at Moses’ former club, Crystal Palace last season before helping England reach the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup, and Sarri has now stressed that the kid will not be leaving the club on loan during the January transfer window
Loftus-Cheek was strongly linked with another short-term move away from Stamford Bridge during the summer, but he ultimately remained in London, just as Moses did with the arrival of Antonio Conte, after three loan deals under Jose Mourinho.
Just like Moses, Loftus-Cheek is yet to start a Premier League match this season, although he recently hit a hat-trick against BATE Borisov in the Europa League.
Just like Moses, there have been suggestions that the Englishman could depart Chelsea at the start of 2019, but Sarri insisted that will not be the case for Loftus-Cheek.
While keeping silent on Moses, Sarri said about Loftus-Cheek: “Ruben in October played four matches out of five.
“I think at the moment the situation is not for a loan of course. He has improved, but he needs to improve more from the tactical point of view,.
“The rest is good: he has great physical characteristics, he is fast, solid, he has impact, great characteristics.
“Technically he is very good and I think if he wants to play like a midfielder he has to improve in the defensive phase. But the potential is great.”
