Rio Ferdinand has very simple message for West Ham about Chelsea ace Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Rio Ferdinand has absolutely raved about Chelsea ace and reported West Ham United transfer target Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

The 26-year-old has been somewhat of a revelation recently for Chelsea and now seems to be a regular feature in Thomas Tuchel’s side.

West Ham boss David Moyes is keen to bring the Chelsea midfielder to the London Stadium in the summer transfer window according to a report from The Daily Mail.

Central midfield is definitely an area where the Hammers manager needs to strengthen before the start of next season.

We believe that Loftus-Cheek would be a truly sensational signing for West Ham in the summer. He literally has everything that Moyes looks for in a player. And it seems as though one pundit in particular agrees with that sentiment…

Rio Ferdinand raves about Loftus-Cheek

The Lewisham-born midfielder has all of the qualities needed to be a dominating figure in the Premier League.

Loftus-Cheek is incredibly technically gifted and has the ability to physically dominate opponents what with his 6ft 3in frame.

The 26-year-old has pace and power in abundance. He is very versatile as well and knows where the back of the net is.

Back in the 2018/19 season, the midfielder bagged 10 goals and five assists in 35 games for Chelsea (Transfermarkt).

And Rio Ferdinand told his Vibe with Five YouTube channel how he believes the best is still to come from Loftus-Cheek:

“He should be like Yaya (Toure). I have seen him play in defence this season. It’s mad and he looks super comfortable. The manager is starting to trust him and you are seeing a better Ruben Loftus-Cheek now because he can sense trust. I think he’s somebody that they need to find a defined role in this team now for him and let him go. Say ‘go, do your stuff’. Make some demands off him. I want more goals and I want more assists. He’s a top-tier player.”

The sky really should be the limit for RLC.

If the 26-year-old continues to play like he has been of late, he will undoubtedly add to his tally of 10 England caps.

We would absolutely love West Ham to prise the Chelsea midfielder away from Stamford Bridge in the summer.

Rio Ferdinand has outlined just how good Loftus-Cheek is. And the Hammers could really do with someone like the 26-year-old providing more competition for Tomas Soucek next season.
