According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the Old Lady have earmarked Ruben as their top target if the Old Lady do end up losing Arthur this transfer window.

The report adds that they also have Lille’s Renato Sanches and Lyon’s Bruno Guimaraes on their shortlist but think those transfers would be more difficult.

The Blues man has made 18 appearances across all competitions this season after many expected him to depart Stamford Bridge on loan at the start of the season

Speaking earlier this term, Thomas Tuchel suggested that his player had the ability to nail down a starting spot in Chelsea’s side.

‘I see the potential and I think he knows about his potential. Since he was an academy player everyone was very aware about his potential,’ said Tuchel.

‘But the next step is to show it to everyone. Everybody in the stadium must go home and know how good and how strong Ruben is. That is the next step, to actually put the potential on the street and drive the car as fast as possible.

‘This is what he’s doing for many weeks otherwise he would not play, otherwise there would be no chance for him to play, because this is about performance.’
