Newcastle United eye two Chelsea players ahead of summer transfer window

Newcastle United eye Chelsea duo Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Christian Pulisic

According to Dean Jones (h/t Football. London), Newcastle United have reportedly set their sights on Chelsea’s Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Christian Pulisic as part of their big summer transfer plans.

While the potential move could offer more game time for the duo, it could also pose a major challenge for the Blues as they look to make the right decision on who to keep and who to sell in this humongous squad.

After Chelsea’s record-breaking £323 million spend in January, the competition for places has become even more intense, and players like Loftus-Cheek and Pulisic could find themselves struggling to get enough playing time.

With this in mind, the prospect of a move to Newcastle, where they may be able to enjoy more regular first-team opportunities, could be an attractive proposition for the two Chelsea stars.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek has shown glimpses of his talent in recent seasons, but has struggled to consistently break into Chelsea’s starting lineup. A move to Newcastle could allow the midfielder to regain his confidence and form, and make a real impact for the club.

His physicality, vision and technical ability make him a versatile asset for any team, and he could be a valuable addition to the Magpies squad. Loftus-Cheek has the quality to play in the Premier League.

Christian Pulisic, on the other hand, has been one of the brightest talents in the Chelsea squad but has suffered from injury problems, which has limited his playing time.

However, when he is fit, Pulisic has shown the kind of flair, pace, and dribbling skills that make him one of the most exciting players to watch. His ability to score and create goals could be just what Newcastle needs to boost their attacking options.
