Chelsea make transfer decision on Carney Chukwuemeka
Chelsea have no plans of selling Carney Chukwuemeka during the upcoming summer transfer window.
The Blues purchased the youngster from Aston Villa for £20 million last summer, and he made 15 appearances in his debut season.
Chukwuemeka showed glimpses of his quality over the campaign, and Fabrizio Romano claims that he has a big future at Chelsea.
Blues boss Mauricio Pochettino is open to loaning out the midfielder next season, but the club won't include a buy clause as part of the deal.
The news will come as a big blow for AC Milan, who have been exploring the possibility of signing him on loan with an option to buy.
Meanwhile, Brighton & Hove Albion could be a possible loan destination for Chukwuemeka, provided they can guarantee him minutes.
The Seagulls currently have a void in their midfield with Alexis Mac Allister's exit. Moises Caicedo is also expected to leave the club soon.
Chelsea and Arsenal are among contenders to land the Ecuadorian.
