West Ham will rival the likes of Bournemouth and Newcastle for the signature of England international Ruben Loftus-Cheek in January.
According to a report from the Mirror, all three clubs are interested in taking the player on loan with his Chelsea future remaining up in the air.
Loftus-Cheek has not featured as much as he would have hoped under Maurizio Sarri, but game time is likely to increase in the near future, with the England international continuing to impress in all competitions.
Having scored five goals in his last four appearances for Chelsea, the player is being backed to feature more over the festive period with games coming thick and fast.
Should his game time not increase, the midfielder is being tipped to leave on loan in the new year in the search of regular Premier League minutes.
Loftus-Cheek is keen to ensure his personal development is not left behind as a result of a lack of playing time, with his spot in Gareth Southgate’s England squad on the line.
