West Ham United eager to sign £32m-rated Blues midfielder

West Ham United started negotiations with Chelsea footballer Ruben Loftus-Cheek and preparing to sign him with a season-long loan deal in January when the transfer window opens again. Hammers need a new high-class midfielder to improve the squad and England international is the best option in this situation.

He also wants to get regular game time and ready to leave the London club during the winter. Manuel Pellegrini will do everything to add him as he keen to strengthen the midfield much more. Several other clubs also interested to sign him and there will be a real battle for the player. His price could increase and become much more. Ruben is a product of the Blues youth academy and spent his current career in Premier League. He became a top-class midfielder over the years and paid big clubs attention.

Last campaign Loftus-Cheek spent in Crystal Palace where he played 30 matches, scored 2 goals and made 4 assists in all competition. This is an impressive result and he can do much more if he gets a regular place in starting line-up. The 22-year-old is contracted with the London club until 2021 and his release clause is around £32m.
