Marc Guehi will reportedly be provided with an opportunity to impress Chelsea boss Frank Lampard in 2021.
The defender has spent 2020 on loan at Swansea City, making a total of 30 appearances for the Championship outfit in all competitions.
Having made a positive impact at the Liberty Stadium, the England Under-21 international will want to further progress his career in the Premier League next season.
While a loan exit to a top-flight club is a possibility, The Athletic claims that Guehi will spend pre-season with the Blues.
Although there are several players ahead of the prospect in the Stamford Bridge pecking order, departures are expected to take place during the next two transfer windows.
Guehi made two starts for Chelsea in the EFL Cup last season, including during a 2-1 defeat to Manchester United.
