Chelsea are looking into sending Ruben Loftus-Cheek to Germany’s Bundesliga to get his career back on track.
The former England midfielder, 25, is currently out of the picture at Stamford Bridge.
There is still plenty of Premier League interest in the star.
That is despite him having a quiet campaign at relegated Fulham.
But Germany can prepare him for a return — or increase his value.
A bad heel injury ended Loftus-Cheek’s 2018-19 campaign before the Europa League final win over Arsenal, after a career-high 40 appearances during the season.
And his opportunities at the Blues have been limited since.
The England international spent 2020-21 on loan at Fulham.
But he endured a difficult campaign as the Whites were relegated and he contributed just one goal.
SunSport understands Southampton are also keen on his services.
