Chelsea ace Ethan Ampadu has revealed he wants to continue at Stamford Bridge when his loan spell at RB Leipzig comes to an end.
The Wales defender is on a season-long at the Bundesliga club from Stamford Bridge and after a defensive crisis has found himself finally getting some games, and he is really taking his chances over in the Bundesliga and putting in some very impressive performances.
He started in Leipzig’s 1-0 first-leg win at Tottenham in the Champions League last 16 first-leg clash – and once again, he was impressive against one of the best sides in the premier League and against a team that managed to make it all the way to the final last season.
Now he is looking to play some more games this season and has admitted that he is hoping to resume his career back at Stamford Bridge, speaking to the Evening Standard, he said: “It’s my club, always has been and it will always be my home in football. It is great to see that [the other young players] are doing so well.
“They all have great talent and deserve every minute they get pitch time. It shows that young players under a young manager who believes in them can be successful in the Premier League.
“I’m in touch a little [with the other young players], and it’s been a great season for some of the younger players because the manager has shown such faith in them and so far, it’s turning out well. “It points to an exciting future for the club. But my focus is at Leipzig until May and then the European finals with Wales.”
Ampadu has not had many games in the Bundesliga but has been impressive on his outings, and if Chelsea are still looking to improve that back-line, there is no harm in having him the squad next season is there? But Chelsea will still need to delve into that transfer kitty in order to sign a big time defender.
