Chelsea forward Noni Madueke's future is up in the air just months into the season with reports that he could ask to leave the club for more playing time elsewhere.

The 21-year-old joined Chelsea in January in a £30m deal and he impressed heavily when he started against Wimbledon in the league games last month. A video of him parting at the time the club was going through a difficult start to the season has not helped matters.

He cameoed in the last two league games he's had and reported football. London are that he could ask to leave the club in January at least on loan if he was to fulfil his desire of playing regularly.

The England under-21 forward faces competition from the likes of Raheem Sterling and Mykhailo Mudryk for starting place which has made it difficult for him to get into the team as well the fact that Cole Palmer who was brought in at the last minutes before the transfer window shuts could also play wide.

Chelsea have won their last three games in all competitions and the last two in the league, leaving them in a remarkably strong position finish to what has been a rough start to life under manager Mauricio Pocettino.

The test for the new players though will be when they return from the international break with games against Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham and Newcastle all line-upped.

They finished a disappointing 12th in the league table last time out and they will hope that the absence of any kind of European football should help speed up their process of getting the team back to the very top of English and European football.
