Midfielder Carney Chukwuemeka has resumed full training with the first team, according to Chelsea.
He is currently in full training, according to an injury summary on their official website, after missing several games due to a knee issue.
Chukwuemeka’s £20 million transfer last summer generated a lot of optimism at the club despite his sparse appearances last season.
Opportunities have already felt more accessible to the teenager under Mauricio Pochettino, as evidenced by his performance in the season’s first Premier League games.
Before scoring his first goal for the team against West Ham, he started and gradually made his way into the opening goal against Liverpool.
However, a short while later, he was pushed off the pitch, plainly in pain, and there were concerns that he would be expected to lose a significant amount of time.
Chukwuemeka has resumed training.
Despite the fact that he has been absent for more than a month, it was earlier asserted that he has been gradually regaining his fitness by training with Reece James.
He is currently actively participating in first team training in an effort to return to the club, according to the club’s weekly round-up of ailments.
Given the fierce competition for positions in the midfield and offensive positions, it is unclear if he will be able to join the first team right immediately.
Cole Palmer is expected to make his season debut against Fulham this weekend, according to supporters.
It will be challenging for the former Aston Villa player to regain his place in the starting lineup with Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo being practically automatic starters when healthy.
