Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho intends to run the rule over young midfielder Josh McEachran during their preseason world tour.

The Mirror says England Under-21 midfielder McEachran has made just one Premier League start for the Londoners and has been farmed out on loan to Swansea and Middlesbrough for the past 18 months.

But the 20-year-old will be handed the chance to show he can be a part of the first-team rotation under Mourinho as the Blues - who fly out on Thursday - prepare for the new campaign with matches in Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia.
