Fabrizio Romano has reported on Twitter that Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek wants to leave for AC Milan in the summer transfer window.

The Italian journalist has claimed that talks are going on between Chelsea and AC Milan over Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

The 27-year-old England international midfielder himself is keen on a move to Milan, according to Romano.

Time for Ruben Loftus-Cheek to leave Chelsea

In our view, it is time for Ruben Loftus-Cheek to leave Chelsea, and if he gets the chance to move to AC Milan, then he should take it.

Loftus-Cheek has come through the Chelsea youth academy, but he has simply not been a consistent figure in the starting lineup.

The 27-year-old has had loan spells at Crystal Palace and Fulham as well in recent years.

We do not think that Loftus-Cheek will be able to become a regular in the Chelsea first team.

The Chelsea no. 12 has made 18 starts and five substitute appearances in the Premier League this season.

Loftus-Cheek has given one assist in those games.

The £150,000-a-week (SalarySport) English midfielder also made two starts and five substitute appearances in the UEFA Champions League for Chelsea this campaign.

Loftus-Cheek gave one assist in those matches.

It would make sense for Chelsea to cash in on Loftus-Cheek now.
