Chelsea facing the prospect of losing in-demand creative midfielder

Nottingham Forest have made an offer to land Chelsea’s Charly Musonda on loan, as reported by the Telegraph.

The Blues are no strangers to loaning out a footballer and usually let players go out on loan to get some first-team experience. They have the players of Tomas Kalas, Lewis Bakers, Michael Hector and Fikayo Tomori all out on loan at Championship teams.

Musonda started his career at Anderlecht and spent ten seasons with their academy before being snapped up by Chelsea in 2012, alongside his two older siblings. He signed his first professional deal at Stamford Bridge in October 2013.

He was sent out on loan to Spanish club Real Betis for the 2015/16 and 2016/17 campaign to gain some first-team experience. He performed 24 times for them.
