, who state that are actively looking for suitors for Loftus-Cheek.

Their ideal destination is Germany as Bundesliga teams have a reputation for improving British players.

, Rabbi Matondo and Ethan Ampadu have all spent time in the league in recent seasons.

Blues officials are hoping that a successful spell in Germany would increase Loftus-Cheek’s transfer value.

That would mean they could sell him for a decent fee next summer.

The report claims that numerous Premier League sides are interested in signing him, even though he endured a tough time at Craven Cottage.

Southampton are named as one of the interested parties. Ralph Hasenhuttl is searching for midfield reinforcements and could turn to the player, who has been capped ten times by England.

This isn’t the first time Loftus-Cheek has been linked with a Chelsea exit in the summer transfer window.

Previous reports have revealed Maurizio Sarri’s interest from Lazio. Sarri knows Loftus-Cheek from his time as Chelsea manager between 2018 and 2019.

More recently, the player was expected to be used as part of a .

However, Chelsea were beaten to the Moroccan starlet by Paris Saint-Germain, .

Loftus-Cheek has been on the books at Chelsea for his whole professional career. Since being promoted to the first team in January 2015, he’s made 82 appearances and scored 12 goals.

He’s had a loan spell at Crystal Palace, in addition to his temporary stay at Fulham.

Loftus-Cheek effectively has no chance of getting into Thomas Tuchel’s side due to the form of Jorginho and N’Golo Kante.

Mateo Kovacic is another option in central midfield, while England star Mason Mount can also operate there if needed.

Tottenham hand Devine his first professional contract

Tottenham Hotspur have handed midfielder Alfie Devine his first professional deal on his 17th birthday.

Devine became Tottenham’s youngest-ever player and scorer in January when he stepped off the bench to net in their 5-0 FA Cup win at Marine.

: “We are delighted to announce that Alfie Devine has signed his first professional contract with the club.



“The young midfielder, who celebrates his 17th birthday today, has signed a contract that will run until 2024.”

Devine joined Tottenham’s academy from Wigan in the summer of 2020 and his debut against Marine in the FA Cup third round last season is his only senior appearance for the Premier League club.

Elsewhere at Spurs, Paul Merson has identified Raul Jimenez as the perfect replacement for .

“I have been following Wolves’ Raul Jimenez for quite some time now and I’m shocked that the big six have not made a note of his abilities,” .

“Jimenez has propelled Wolves to a mid-table finish and his side has struggled in his absence this year.

“Jimenez is crucial to Wolves’ fortunes and their former manager Nuno Espirito Santo effectively lost his job because of the striker’s absence. Santo’s Wolves side suffered devastating defeats to the likes of Burnley last season and nearly lost their place in the Premier League.

“With Nuno Espirito Santo now in North London, Spurs may well have an alternative to Harry Kane this season. With the England captain possibly on his way out, Santo will need to sign a replacement and Raul Jimenez suits the role to perfection.

“The centre-forward could also bring the best out of Heung-Min Son and make him look like one of the best in the Premier League.

“Son’s new four-year contract at the club could either indicate Harry Kane’s decision to stay or could prepare Tottenham for a future with an alternative striker.

“Raul Jimenez’s involvement with the Mexico national team could deny him a move to a big club, however, given that the travel and time difference could complicate matters pertaining to his Premier League ambitions.

“I cannot possibly think of another reason why he has not been signed by a bigger club – Raul Jimenez is one of the best strikers on offer at the moment and is the most underrated player in the Premier League.”
