Chelsea are ready to loan out winger Mykhailo Mudryk in the hope that it could help the Ukrainian discover his lost form.
Much was made of Mudryk’s arrival at Stamford Bridge in January, with Chelsea snatching him from under the noses of Arsenal who had been working for months on a deal to bring him to North London.
They paid a pretty penny for his services as well, with signing him potentially costing the club £89 million, and handing him an eight year deal.
But he has struggled to make any impression so far, failing to score in his first 21 games, and providing just two assists.
There are those at Stamford Bridge who are convinced that they have signed a major talent, but, with his confidence suffering in a struggling team, a stint elsewhere might just enable him to return better able to cope with the demands of the Premier League.
