An update has emerged on Chelsea star Ruben Loftus-Cheek, regarding Newcastle United’s interest in his services.

According to a fresh report by 90min, the club have compiled a list of transfer targets for the January market and the Blues midfielder features on it.

The report states that it remains to be seen how viable a swoop for Loftus-Cheek is considering his recent resurgence at Stamford Bridge.

Whilst the London side’s academy graduate is not new to the Premier League, the towering player could be a player they are able to invest in.

At the age of 25, Loftus-Cheek should be heading into his peak years and Newcastle United could benefit from that by giving the player regular playing time and the chance to flourish – raising his market price and potentially making a sizeable fee of money on him in the future.

In his last full campaign for the west London giants, he produced 10 goals and five assists in 14 starts in the top-flight and the UEFA Europa League combined.

This shows that the England international could be the Magpies next goalscoring midfield sensation, which is why they must get a deal done in the near future.
