Liverpool, West Ham and Leeds all interested in midfield baller

Lewis Bate is one of the most exciting players in this crop of Chelsea academy players, but he might not be sticking around for long.

Much like his teammate Tino Livramento, he’s doesn’t seem interested in signing a new contract. The Daily Mail report that there are already several Premier League teams interested in signing the youngster should he decide to leave Chelsea.

Liverpool, West Ham and Leeds are all mentioned as potential destinations, and it’s clear from the stature of the clubs that are chasing

The left footed 18 year old is small in stature but great in talent, and we would be gutted to see him go. It’s a tricky situation we find ourselves in now, with so many of our top youngsters struggling to see a path to the first team.

We’ve lost brilliant players in the last 12 months, and 2 or 3 more could go this year. We looked to close to having the youth revolution we craved, but now it looks close to falling apart.
