Championship side Leicester City have approached Chelsea regarding a move for Italian starlet Cesare Casadei.
La Gazzetta dello Sport state that no clubs in Serie A have come forward with offers for Casadei so far but Leicester City have. Their approach didn’t lead to anything concrete as Casadei wants to stay in the Premier League and play in the top tier of English football next season.
Chelsea will not let him leave on a permanent basis but there is very little chance that he plays with the Blues first-team. Chelsea will only consider letting him go on a loan deal, with Brighton also interested. The Blues go to the United States for their pre-season games and that will be a chance for Brighton to potentially speak to Chelsea over a move.
Casadei will be joining the first-team in the United States, where Chelsea will play five games and he is expected to feature for Mauricio Pochettino’s side. But his future remains uncertain.
