Super Eagles defender Kenneth Omeruo has suggested he could be an option to Chelsea coach Antonio Conte who has openly cried out about the lack of depth in his squad ahead of the start of the Premier League season.
Conte’s squad is decimated in terms of size following the departure of so many players who contributed to the depth of the squad that won the League title last season.
Omeruo who has been out on loan since joining Chelsea in 2012 has so far not been heavily involved in the training sessions of the first team as he appears not to be in the first team plans of coach Conte.
However a door appears to have open for the defender following the lack of heavy spending at Chelsea this season, as so far only Antonio Rudigier was signed to beef up the defence of the team.
The Nigerian put his hands up for selection with a post on social media where he confirmed his readiness to help out Chelsea on instagram with a post that reads ” Pre season finally done.. #Omeruo #Chelseafc #preseason”.
23 year old Omeruo spent the last one week with the U18s of Chelsea in France, and played a part in their test game played over the weekend. A decision on his imminent future is however expected to be made soon.
