Juventus are reportedly keen on signing Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek on a temporary basis.

The England international is a squad player with the Blues, and there are doubts over his long-term future.

His current deal expires in 18 months, and Sky Sport Italy claims that he could join the Bianconeri on a short-term loan.

The Turin giants are willing to loan out Arthur to Arsenal this month, provided they can land a suitable replacement.

Loftus-Cheek suits the Serie A outfit with his strong physical and aerial presence. They could propose a loan with a buy option.

It is unclear whether the Blues will consider an approach for their graduate with Thomas Tuchel reluctant to lose any regular players.

Loftus-Cheek has hardly played in recent weeks, but he is considered a key back-up option in case there is an injury or Covid crisis.

The club could potentially wait until the summer to sanction his exit. Southampton have also been linked with his services.
