Chelsea Have 3 Experienced Players Out On Loan In The Premier League: Who Should They Sell?

Must Read
Nikhil Vinodh
Nikhil has been an avid Chelsea fan for as long as the concept of time has existed and rumours say that he even bleeds blue. Having lived in the UK for 3 years, Nikhil is said to have an excellent understanding of the atmosphere surrounding the English game. His role model is the greatest manager of all time - Jose Mourinho.

Premier League giants Chelsea have undergone what is arguably the best transfer window that any club has had in recent years. The additions of key names like Ben Chilwell and Thiago Silva have solved the Blues’ defensive concerns, while the signings of Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech have heavily bolstered their attack as well.

Although many expected this season to be sort of a trial run for these new stars, things have actually panned out quite differently. Over the last number of weeks, Chelsea have been showing excellent form, and if they’re able to keep it up, then a title challenge could surely be on.

For all the players that they brought in, Lampard was well aware of the fact that some would have to be shipped out as well. The likes of Willian and Pedro were released, while Mario Pasalic was sold permanently to Atalanta. Apart from that, as is the norm at Chelsea over many years now, several players were shipped out on loan as well. Youngsters like Conor Gallagher and Marc Guehi were sent out, while more experienced figures like Victor Moses were added to that list as well. Included in the latter are 3 experienced Chelsea players on loan in the Premier League.

Here Are 3 Experienced Chelsea Players On Loan In The Premier League:

Ross Barkley

The Englishman had only a fringe role to play in the team last season, and although unexpected, it didn’t come as too much of a surprise when he was shipped out to Aston Villa on a season-long loan. Barkley’s contributions as a Chelsea player were limited, with his FA Cup goal against Liverpool last season one of the major highlights. This time around though, the former Everton man has made quite the name for himself, and at Villa, and is now a regular starter in Dean Smith’s squad.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Another English Chelsea player, who unlike Barkley, actually came through the London club’s academy system. Despite being touted for a massive future by numerous pundits and coaches, the midfielder has failed to live up to expectations. Although many fans have given up on his career, it must be taken into account that injuries have had a massive part to play in his apparent downfall. Now at Fulham, he has been presented with a glorious chance to get some regular playing time, and thereby convince Lampard that he deserves a second chance.

Michy Batshuayi

The Belgian’s most iconic moment as a Chelsea player is one that is etched into the history books of the club. He was the man that scored the Blues’ title-winning goal under Antonio Conte, but despite the odd stint in the wide, Batshuayi has struggled to make a place for himself in the starting eleven. Currently, at Crystal Palace, the attacker has been getting the off game, but he hasn’t really taken off in terms of goals though. The Eagles will surely be hoping that he starts firing on all cylinders once again soon.

The Verdict

Ross Barkley was brought in from Everton as Chelsea looked for a proper number ten, while Loftus-Cheek ball-carrying and dribbling skills were touted to be among the best in the world. Although the aforementioned duo hasn’t been able to deliver on the promises, the possibility of them coming good for the Blues in the long run still exists. Michy Batshuayi though, even though he scores the odd goal, doesn’t look like the kind of player who is going to have a future at the club. With Tammy Abraham and Timo Werner now available as striking options, it would be in the club’s best interest to cash in on the Belgian at the earliest.
