There has been some reports emerge from abroad which have claimed Mario Pasalic will head to either Lazio or Napoli on loan this summer.
The highly-rated Hajduk Split star is expected to arrive at Stamford Bridge this summer after agreeing a pre-contract deal in January.
However, just like many of the players at Chelsea, he will be sent out on-loan in a bid to get some much needed first-team experience.
Chelsea’s director of sport Michael Emenalo told the Italian press that Pasalic will need to move on from Split.
As quoted on the TMW website, he said: “Mario has outgrown Hajduk and in the summer he has to move to a bigger club.
“That is the only way for him to one day play at Stamford Bridge.”
