Chelsea’s Marc Guehi is reportedly impressing many at Chelsea with his performances so far for Swansea City – so much so that they are considering promoting him to the first-team in the summer.
Chelsea’s Marc Guehi Impressing for Swansea
Solid Showings From Guehi for Swansea
The defender has spent two seasons out loan at Swansea, where he has consistently put in a string of solid performances for the Championship club. In fact, he has arguably become one of their most important players during his time there.
Featuring in 27 games for Swansea so far, his performances at the heart of defence have caught the eye of his parent club.
Chelsea’s Marc Guehi Could Make First-Team Move in Summer
They are now believed to be considering the possibility of bringing the player back to the club in the summer and moving him up to the first-team. They at least want to have him train with the starting squad over the course of pre-season to watch him even more closely and that could then lead to a full-time promotion.
Guehi May Need a Premier League Loan
The only potential issue that remains is if Chelsea believe he is ready for Premier League football – Guehi has only played at Championship level so far and therefore would have to make the jump up a tier if he started to play for Chelsea.
That means that he may have to spend another season out on loan first, to a team in the top tier, but, if the 20-year old continues to impress on a regular basis then he may not even need to do that.
Guehi is of course yet to make his professional debut at Stamford Bridge and also remains just 20-years of age. However, if he continues to put in the solid showings that he is doing at Swansea in the Championship, then that first-team call up looks like it may not be too far away for the young defender.
