Jose Mourinho Wants Forgotten Chelsea Man At AS Roma Ahead Of Transfer Deadline Day

Jose Mourinho is hoping to lure another Chelsea player to AS Roma following the signing of Tammy Abraham.

Mourinho has already raided his former club for one of their star players, with Abraham moving to Roma in a transfer worth £34 million.

And if the ex-Premier League gaffer has his way, he'll draft in a second talent from the Blues this summer.

That's according to Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport who claim Mourinho is eyeing Ruben Loftus-Cheek ahead of transfer deadline day.

It's reported that Thomas Tuchel's side are willing to let him leave Stamford Bridge on an initial loan deal, with the option to buy permanently for £16 million.

Mourinho gave the 25-year-old his debut at Chelsea in 2014 and knows him well from his second managerial stint at the club.

The midfielder spent last season on loan at Fulham, making 30 appearances and scoring one goal in the league.

Tuchel said Loftus-Cheek can 'decide his own future' when discussing his situation earlier this month: "It's too early to judge Ruben.

"He has everything in his hands. He can decide his own future."

Loftus-Cheek hopes to 'hit the ground running' this campaign.

He said: "I had last season as a season where I can find my feet, and it definitely felt like that at the start.

"I was struggling mentally and needed to focus on just taking risks in training and get that feel back.

"But it eventually came and I was doing really well in games, so I've had my injury and I've had a season now to get fit and feel confident in my body and this season is where I hit the ground running.

"I feel really fit now and strong, and hopefully the injuries stay away.

"Last season was my first full injury-free season which is a massive positive for me, because I always used to get niggles.

"Even though I was fit I'd be out for a week or a couple of days, miss a couple of matches, but last season was good for my body to be fit every training session and available for every game."
