Nikola Vlasic has started this season well out on loan for Russian Premier League side CSKA Moscow.
The Blues are looking good themselves, of course, after two solid wins in the league before the international break but Vlasic’s early form has still caught the eye.
Indeed, he did well against Real Madrid in the Champions League not so long ago and that fact is always going to grab attention.
With that in mind, then, I asked fellow Blues whether or not we should now look to keep the player when he returns on loan instead of get rid and most appear to think we should:
Under Sam Allardyce his game-time became more and more scarce and eventually, he was nowhere near the starting line-up.
He’s proving a point somewhat over in Russia at the moment, though, and so it could be wise to keep him on our books past this year.
