Loftus-Cheek has been left out of several of Gareth Southgate’s England squads due to a lack of playing time. With the Qatar World Cup just around the corner, speculation is rife that the 26-year-old is looking for a way out of Stamford Bridge.

He has two years left on his contract at West Ham and Inter Milan are planning an offer for him, according to Gazzetta dello Sport (via talkSPORT).
As for Loftus-wages, Cheek’s according to the report, Chelsea want around €20 million for the midfielder. However, at his current annual salary of €3.5 million, the Italian giants shouldn’t have any issues signing him.
In the Nerazzurri’s view, a loan move is more likely at this point in time. He has previously spent two seasons on loan at different clubs. He was called up to the England World Cup squad after an outstanding 2017-18 season with Crystal Palace.
Loftus-most Cheek’s recent loan to Fulham did not go as planned, as he was unable to prevent the Cottagers from being relegated.
