Chelsea appear set to allow Ruben Loftus-Cheek to depart the club this summer. The midfielder has played a bit-part role for the Blues throughout this troubling season, and they could be set to cash in on their former youth star.
The club have opened discussions with AC Milan revolving around a deal for the former Crystal Palace loan star, and an agreement could be reached before the summer transfer window opens.

Loftus-Cheek has been with the Blues since coming through the youth academy. However, he has constantly struggled to nail down a starting berth in the Blues starting eleven.
AC Milan have been long-term admirers of the midfielder, and they have opened preliminary talks with the Blues, according to Football Insider. The Italian giants had made an enquiry about his availability last summer, but opted to pursue other targets instead.
The Blues are open to allowing a number of stars to depart the club this summer, as they look to balance the books following heavy spending under Todd Boehly.
