Cheick Keita has reportedly been subject to interest from clubs in Italy and Spain following his season out on loan at Bologna.

The left-back signed for £2m from Virtus Entella in January 2017 but has played just 11 times for the Blues since his arrival.

Fans on Twitter are hoping that the 22-year-old stays:

Verdict:

Keita was allowed to move to Serie A at the beginning of the season by Harry Redknapp, but he played just three times during his spell in Italy.

Yet, it seems his reputation is such that he still remains a sought-after young player. Perhaps Garry Monk should give him a chance to impress in pre-season at least before making a firm decision on his future.

He could do a job for us further up the pitch and also provide cover at left back if need be. Whether he’ll be given that opportunity, we’ll have to wait and see.
