Mourinho interested in adding Loftus-Cheek to Roma. Roma coach Jose Mourinho is eyeing another Chelsea surplus, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, to add to the midfield. Before the summer transfer window closes at the end of the month.

According to Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport, Loftus-Cheek is keen for Mourinho to add to the Roma midfield in the 2021-22 season. Because he is well aware of the player’s situation. Chelsea ready to sell out of the team fully.

Loftus-Cheek has little chance of infiltrating Thomas Tuchel’s squad this season despite good pre-season performances. But with a 3-4-3 system. There was no room for the former England midfielder. Because the midfield duo still have to compete for positions between Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic and N’Golo Kante.

Mourinho will therefore hope to take advantage of the opportunity to bring Loftus-Cheek to Rome’s Stadio Olimpico, as he recently signed for Che’s striker Tammy Abraham. LSI had previously reached a base price of 40 million euros, while Loftus-Cheek was set at around 16 million euros.
