What a night for Ruben Loftus-Cheek. The England international has been short of minutes this season with the plethora of options Maurizio Sarri has at his disposal. However, when he was provided with his opportunity to start last night in a Europa League game against BATE at Stamford Bridge, he didn’t disappoint. Loftus-Cheek bagged his first professional hattrick, the first Chelsea player to do so in Europe since Didier Drogba in 2006. With West Ham United in need of a dynamic playmaker at number 10 to create more chances than they currently do, many of their fans feel that the 22-year-old would be the perfect fit.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at what the Hammers’ thoughts are and why plenty of fans feel he would be a remarkable addition on loan in January.
Begging we get Loftus-Cheek on loan in January, hope the rumours are true.

If they managed to get Loftus-Cheek on a permament deal, West Ham’s midfield would be filled with first-team ready, homegrown talent.
Get Loftus-Cheek to West Ham ASAP, so strong and dynamic get in my midfield

Yes he looked good for place last year. It’s a shame that he doesn’t look like he will get a chance at Chelsea
