“I have spoken with Eden two or three times in the last two days.

“He has spoken of everything. I think this problem — the Hazard problem — is not present now.”

Loftus-Cheek, 22, spent last season on loan at Crystal Palace where he played 24 Premier League games under Roy Hodgson.

The Prem website appeared to confirm that he IS heading back to Selhurst Park for another loan spell, but that has not been confirmed by either club, or Sarri.

The Italian added: “He’s potentially a great player.

“He has to improve from a tactical point of view but I think it’s not a problem.

“He is very young, he can be a very useful player for us.”
