Chelsea continue to add to the Loan Army, conceivably hitting 40 by the end of the month

There is one week to go in the transfer windows of most European leagues outside of England and Italy — though English lower division teams can still arrange loans before then as well — so if any of Chelsea’s current players are hankering for a loan, they better start acting fast.

Yesterday, Tomáš Kalas did just that, joining Jay Dasilva at Bristol City for the season. Kalas became loanee No.32. Several more could join that list; in fact, we could top 40 loanees by the end of the month.

In addition to Michael Hector’s link with Sheffield Wednesday, Lucas Piazon had recently been linked with a move to Ligue 1 outfit Stade Reims, who had won promotion from Ligue 2 last season.

But while Reims are indeed looking for reinforcements in attack, they are looking for a different profile of player than Piazon. That’s according to head coach David Guion, who confirmed yesterday that Piazon “had been proposed” to them, but he’s looking for “an attacker who takes the spaces” instead of whatever he thinks Piazon might be.

So, Lucas continues to instead train with the first-team, with his future still undecided despite probably not having that much of a chance at the first-team this season (or in the future).
