A loan move at Crystal Palace helped Loftus-Cheek  force his way into Gareth Southgate’s World Cup squad and there seems to be equally robust competition at Stamford Bridge this season.

The Blues have already signed Jorginho from Napoli and  Goal understands Mateo Kovacic is undergoing a medical prior to  finalizing a loan move from Real Madrid .

There is the presence of the likes of Cesc Fabregas, N’Golo Kane and RossBarkley though Loftus-Cheek insists he’s centered on staying at the club despite rumours of a loan move away from the club.
