Chelsea midfielder attracting Newcastle United interest

Loftus-Cheek to Newcastle?

Newcastle United are reportedly lining up an approach for Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek.



The England international was widely tipped to leave the Blues on loan this summer, but manager Thomas Tuchel opted to keep him.

Loftus-Cheek barely got off the bench in the opening weeks, but he recently started in the 3-1 Premier League win over Southampton.

There still remain concerns over his long-term future and Fichajes claims that the Magpies are weighing up a January move for him.

The club were linked with a possible loan deal for Loftus-Cheek over the summer, but nothing materialised between the clubs.

The Tyneside outfit are now owned by a Saudi-based consortium, who have promised to take them to the top of the Premier League.

There will be significant spending in the coming transfer windows. It could start from January with the club's precarious position.

The Magpies are currently languishing in the drop zone, and the new owners will look to pursue signings that can make a difference.
