As well as looking at buying and selling players over the next couple of months, Chelsea will also be sorting out loan deals for a number of players.

One player who could potentially be on the loan list is 19-year old Ethan Ampadu.

The Welsh international had a disaster spell with RB Leipzig last season, rarely being handed a first team start.

So his next move has to be pinnacle now at a crucial stage of his development.

Frank Lampard more than likely hasn’t even decided what he will be doing with Ampadu next season yet, and whether he has a chance in his first team. A lot will depend on which players Lampard looks to sign.

But The Athletic journalist Michael Bailey believes that ‘a loan to Fulham is likely’ for the versatile youngster.

Bailey tweeted yesterday that Norwich wanted to loan him, but this wont happen and a move to Chelsea’s close neighbours is now likely.
