Welsh youngster Ethan Ampadu has just returned on loan from Italian side Venezia. Now the 21-year-old may see himself returning to Serie A but for another club.


Ampadu is another Blue youngster who has been loaned out to various clubs to prepare the player for first-team football in the Premier League. During his career, Ampadu has already played for Exeter, RB Leipzig, Sheffield United and more recently Venezia.

According to the Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, an agreement between Spezia and Chelsea should be concluded quickly. Chelsea are ready to sell Ampadu who has two years left on his current contract at the club.

The Welsh defender has failed to impress at Chelsea first-team level, making just 12 appearances despite signing for the club in 2017.
