Antonio Conte won the Premier League title in his debut season in England as he managed to take Chelsea to their 6th Premier League title last season. It was Chelsea’s 2nd title in three years and it showed how far the Blues have come in the last few years. However, Conte will now have to improve his squad to compete with the best next season and this might see him sell a few players this summer.
There are a number of youngsters at the club who deserve regular game time but are not going to get it at the Stamford Bridge next season. The best option for Conte is to send them out on loan for next season. Here are three such players Chelsea should send out on loan this summer.
The 22-year old Dutch international is taking huge strides in recent times as Conte decided to bring him back to the Bridge midway through a loan deal. Ake was out on loan at Bournemouth but returned to Chelsea in January and played a crucial role late in the season in various positions. But he is not expected to be the first choice next season and might be yet again sent out on loan this summer.
Batshuayi is a Conte buy and the Italian has seen something in the Belgian youngster that saw him splash the cash on him last summer. However, he is yet to adjust to the needs of the Premier League and has not been able to establish himself in the first team under Conte. Chelsea are also set to lose Diego Costa this summer and replacements will be brought in, thus leaving no place in the first team for Batshuayi. So a loan deal looks perfect for the £21.2m rated attacker. (transfermarkt.co.uk)
One player who made regular appearances in the first team last season was full-back Aina. He has been used extensively by Conte due to injuries and lack of personnel and the 20-year old was decent most of the times when he was called upon to the first team. However, Conte is sure to beef up his wing-back positions which will push Aina further down the pecking order and this might leave him with a loan deal as the only possible option for his career at Chelsea.
