Chelsea man vents about future and suggests he could leave Blues this summer

There’s not much to moan about at Chelsea right now, with the Blues’ table-topping form proving pretty much irresistible in the Premier League.

Under the dynamic stewardship of Antonio Conte, the west London giants looks like closing in on a fifth English title and life at Stamford Bridge looks rather sweet right now.

Still, speaking to BBC Sport, a Chelsea player has suggested he could leave SW6 this summer.

Kenneth Omeruo, who signed for the club way back in January 2012, has revealed trying to find a future for himself there is no longer his immediate priority.

He’s yet to play a first-team game since he initially joined from Standard Liege over half a decade ago now, though has spent time on loan in Turkey, as well as two spells with Middlesbrough.

Indeed, the Nigerian (who won the African Cup of Nations in 2013, as well as playing in the World Cup a year later) has revealed a move to Besiktas failed last summer before he joined fellow SuperLig side Alanyaspor.

“It might happen that I get to play for Chelsea but it is no longer my immediate priority,” he said.

“You have no idea how frustrating it is to always go out on loan.”

“Last season I had an opportunity to go to one of Turkey’s biggest clubs [Besiktas] but the deal collapsed two days to the end of the transfer window,” he added.

“This season I was lucky I could find a place where I could still play because they want me to come to Alanyaspor.

“My priority is to play at the top, to find a place where I get to play regularly.

“Next season will be interesting because I’m looking to be in one of the top leagues, so we’ll see what happens.”

While he’s clearly a talent, the Chelsea fans in the bar believe the likes of Nathan Ake and Kurt Zouma are far more exciting prospects to supplement the first-team.
