Ruben Loftus-Cheek wanted at West Ham
West Ham United are lining up a potential loan move for Chelsea youngster Ruben Loftus-Cheek. The England Under-21 international has made a solitary league appearance under Antonio Conte this season.
Loftus-Cheek, 20, has not had much success in the first-team this season, and Conte would welcome the opportunity for his player to pursue a temporary deal away from Stamford Bridge.
A host of Championship clubs have expressed interest in signing midfield anchorman this month, but according to The Express, the Hammers could have the edge over other sides.
Loftus-Cheek is said to be open to a Premier League stay, and this makes the Hammers favourites given they are prepared to offer him a regular starting place.
Slaven Bilic's side have recently made amends to their poor league start and find themselves 13th with 19 points.
