Everton move for Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Everton are moving for Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

The Daily Mail says Everton are interested in Chelsea midfielder Loftus-Cheek but Thomas Tuchel has been keen to keep him at Stamford Bridge.

The 25-year-old English midfielder has played 20 matches this season for the Blues and provided three assists, two of which came in the Premier League in October.

Juventus were also eyeing a loan deal for the Blues academy graduate as a replacement for Arthur, but his loan deal to Arsenal has hit an impasse.

Everton meanwhile are desperate for midfield reinforcements following injuries to Abdoulaye Doucoure and Fabian Delph, who are expected to be out for at least four weeks with groin and thigh problems respectively.

The midfielder has scored 12 goals in 102 appearances for the Blues since making his first-team debut in 2014.
