Juan Familia-Castillo is open to a loan move away from Chelsea.
The Dutch wing-back, 18, admits he feels ready for the next step.
"I have looked purely where I can best develop and that is in England. The pace in England is much higher than in the Netherlands and Chelsea is also one of the biggest clubs in England," he told NOS.
"Sure, the money and everything involved is nice, but I've only chosen for football.
"Of course it'd be nice to play in the Eredivisie right now, but playing there does not automatically mean that you're better."
On playing for Chelsea, he added: "If that step is still too big, then I will be loaned first. That's how I hope to get closer."
