Antonio Conte is reportedly keen to have talented youngster Andreas Christensen back in the club’s first-team when his loan with Borussia Monchengladbach comes to an end after this season.
Andreas Christensen has impressed in a two-year spell in the Bundesliga, and has been linked with a number of top clubs after establishing himself as one of Europe’s top young defenders.
However, Chelsea look ready to give him the first-team football he deserves with a key role in Conte’s squad when he returns for next season
Chelsea have gained a reputation over the years for neglecting their young players and only using the loan market as a means through which to sell them for a profit, but that culture seems to be changing under Conte.
Victor Moses and Nathaniel Chalobah are among two regularly loaned out players who have been given chances in the Blues’ first-team this term, and Christensen looks another talent capable of breaking through.
Tammy Abraham, the 19-year-old striker on loan at Bristol City, is also believed to be in Conte’s thinking for next season.
