Ethan Ampadu would reportedly prefer to remain at Chelsea next season rather than spend another campaign out on loan.

Ethan Ampadu has reportedly told Chelsea boss Frank Lampard that he wishes to remain at Stamford Bridge next season.

The 19-year-old was provided with just two starts and five substitute appearances in all competitions on loan at RB Leipzig last campaign.

Given his lack of game time, Chelsea are open to allowing the Wales international to go elsewhere again, potentially to West London neighbours Fulham.

However, according to Goal, Ampadu has informed Lampard that he wants to fight for his place in the Blues first-team squad.

Although the youngster would only likely remain as a fringe member, he would provide valuable backup in defence and midfield.

Lampard is keen for different options in the centre of his backline, while academy graduate Billy Gilmour will be sidelined until at least October with a knee injury.
