Chelsea winger Christian Atsu is not short of offers as he prepares to leave for loan.

The Mirror says it is thought Chelsea would prefer him to move to team in England so they can establish whether he's ready for the physicality of Premier League football and Aston Villa, Everton and West Ham United are all keen.

Celtic, Espanyol, PSV and Hamburg are also interested, but the sticking point is finding a club that will offer him enough game time to increase his chances of competing for a place in the Chelsea side for the following season.
