Brighton would be perfect choice to loan breakout Chelsea wonderkid

Chelsea youngster Cesare Casadei has risen from relative obscurity in the last 6 months, and is now looking like the player that the Blues thought they were buying a year ago.

After 6 months playing in the development squad he went out on loan in January and joined relegation battling Reading in the Championship – a real baptism of fire in senior football.

He then stepped up again from there to the U20 World Cup in Argentine where he has driven Italy to the final, becoming the tournament’s top scorer (as a central midfielder!) along the way.

Now stories in places like Calcio Mercato in his native Italy are reporting that he’s a loan target for Premier League teams like Aston Villa and Brighton next season.

The Seagulls are an interesting prospect – they’re about to lose their dynamic attack minded midfielder in the form of Alexis Mac Allister to Liverpool, and their Italian manger Roberto De Zerbi would be a great choice to develop Casadei as his replacement.


  1. Brighton don’t tend to take players on loan. Albion would seem to rather develop their own young players than someone else’s with game time a premium in the first team. The notable exception was Levi Colwill who Brighton wanted to buy rather than loan but took because it was the only way of getting cover with Cucurella going at the very end of the window. If he’s worth loaning why wouldn’t Brighton would probably try and buy him

  2. Yes send him to the seaside like Colwill who is making demands about returning to Chelsea. The way things are heading only Enzo will remain from the midfield even making 2 signings will leave room. The new coach has a rep for working with young guys.
