Interest Mounts In Chelsea’s Josh McEachran
Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers admits he would love to take the talented Josh McEachran on loan should Chelsea be prepared to release the midfielder.
The Welsh outfit have been linked with the gifted 18-year old, who has been touted as a future England star, and with McEachran struggling to find first team football at Stamford Bridge Rodgers is keen to take the midfielder on loan. Rodgers said:
“I need to have a conversation at length (with Chelsea),” he said.
“Josh is not playing at the moment, he is on the bench, although he played (against Everton) last night.
“He is a wonderful talent and the positive thing is that clubs see Swansea as a club that can develop such talents.
“He has a big future, he played in the same team as my son right through the system at Chelsea and has kicked on since he turned 14.
“He has got great vision, he is a terrific footballer and he needs to play in a certain system.
“I think (Chelsea manager) Andre (Villas-Boas) and (sporting director) Michael Emenolo understand he will need to get some games and when that moment comes he is certainly a player who would do terrific here.
“All we can do is our best, we try to be in the market for the very best players. We don’t have the finances to buy such players but if it allows us to loan players then I would be confident in what we could give such a player.”
Early this year Villas-Boas insisted the youngster would remain at Stamford Bridge and would not be sent out on loan, but with the midfielder struggling to find game time in west London AVB could be forced to loan out McEachran to aid his development.
