Chelsea youngster Islam Feruz looks set to depart the club on loan this summer, according to The Daily Mail.
The report has suggested that Blues boss Jose Mourinho wants to give the highly rated teenager regular first team experience in the 2014/15 campaign.
And it appears that a number of clubs are interested in his services, with as many as four clubs ready to take him to the Championship. The likes of Cardiff, Reading, Derby and Brighton are all reportedly interested in bringing him away from Stamford Bridge for the short term.
At 18-years-old, the forward seemingly has a bright future in the game, and will be desperate to further improve as he ultimately targets a place in Jose Mourinho's starting XI. The 'Special One' has recognised the youngster's talents, having already handed him a new deal with the club earlier on this year.
His performances for the club's U21 side have certainly impressed many in the footballing world, and it will be interesting to see how he performs in England's second tier.
If he does return to Stamford Bridge in one years time, then he may have to compete with Spanish duo Fernando Torres and Diego Costa for a place in the first team.
Costa - who looks set to join the Blues in the near future - is one of the leading strikers in world football right now. The Atletico hitman had a sensational in La Liga and now looks set to star at this summer's World Cup with Spain.
Torres, however, struggled for consistency once again last term, but - like Costa - will be hoping for a successful tournament in Brazil. With Costa and Torres at the club and Feruz to join the first team in the coming years, the strike force at Chelsea certainly looks to be an exciting one.
Fans of the Stamford Bridge outfit will now be hoping Feruz enjoys a fine spell at one of the Championship big-boys before making a name for himself under Mourinho at the Bridge.
