Chelsea transfer news: Blues considering sending their 19-year-old on loan to the Championship

Chelsea are reportedly considering sending their young talent Omari Hutchinson out on loan this month.

According to the Evening Standard, the Blues are weighing up potential loan moves for some of their rising stars.

The report names Hutchinson, 19, as an individual that is being considered for a loan in January. Gabriel Slonina and Cesare Casadei are mentioned, too.

It is explained that a move to the Championship would be the preferred destination for the aforementioned trio.

Hutchinson has played the first two games of his senior career this month, with both of them coming against Manchester City.

Graham Potter has used the Chelsea talent in a Premier League and FA Cup fixture. According to the Evening Standard, Potter has been ‘hugely impressed’ by the teenage attacker in training as well.

The left-footed forward made the short move across London last summer by joining Chelsea from Arsenal, which has led to a first-team debut

However, it feels like the youngster still has somehow to go before he establishes himself as a regular in Potter’s main group.

In our view, Hutchison should definitely be excited about the prospect of a loan spell during the second half of the season.

The 19-year-old has so many players ahead of him in the pecking order at Chelsea, so a taste of senior action in the second division could be great for his development.

He’s definitely still a tad raw and a bit lightweight for the Blues first team, which is totally normal for someone his age.

If he gets half a season playing regularly in the Championship, Hutchinson should be a lot more equipped going into pre-season for next year.
