French giants AS Monaco have reportedly emerged as contenders to sign Chelsea centre-back Andreas Christensen.

Christensen has lost his starting spot since the appointment of Maurizio Sarri, with his father previously confirming that he could be forced to leave Chelsea if the situation doesn’t change.

The Dane is widely considered one of our promising young players, which is why his disgruntlement has set off alarm bells among the Chelsea faithful. It’s also why there will be no shortage of suitors if he does decide to depart.

According to Foot Mercato, AS Monaco are one of the teams interested in signing Christensen. The report claims that an initial loan deal is on the cards, with a potential option to buy not being ruled out.

We’d hate to see Christensen leave on a permanent basis so soon after the club sold Nathan Ake. It would confirm that our board have failed to learn from their mistakes of the past.
