Chelsea have an array of youngsters whose potentials could do the club a lot of good in some years from now; in terms of providing excellent playing services and also monetarily.
Considering the tight competition for playing shirts, a whole lot of these promising talents get to be loaned out so as to further their development and cut their teeth as regards the tough challenges senior team football pose.
At the moment 20 of all 38 Chelsea players out on loan are below 21 years of age, and if things go right, a majority of them should become very valuable in the near future.
Here are 3 who could be worth big money in 5 years or so.
The 18-year-old England youth international featured for Chelsea only twice towards the very tail end of last season. After an impressive series of performances for the youth side, Guus Hiddink invited him to join the senior team, and he made his league debut in away and home appearances against Liverpool and Leicester City respectively.
Now on a season-long loan at Championship side Bristol City, Tammy has already hit the ground running and is making the headlines in the 2nd division. The Football League Championship Player of the Month for September tops the highest goalscorer chart with 8 strikes and is already on the radar of some big sides ahead of next summer transfer window.
At 6 feet 4 inches, the English teenager is a complete striking package and has earned comparisons with Didier Drogba due to his strength. If his fine form in front of goals continues, the 2-time UEFA Youth League winner will see his stocks rise astronomically.
