According to Evening Standard, Chelsea won’t take up the £28million option to make Denis Zakaria loan move permanent at the end of the season.

Former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel signed Zakaria on loan from Juventus until the end of the season and the midfielder hasn’t done enough to make his stay permanent.

The report also adds that Chelsea will take a look at 19-year-old midfielder Andrey Santos, who is currently on loan at Vasco da Gama, during pre-season.
