Chelsea new signing Malang Sarr could be on his way back to Ligue 1 on loan for 2020/21 season.

According to Telefoot, Ligue 1 side St. Etienne have indicated interest in signing the centre-back on loan before the end of the transfer window.

St. Etienne manager, Claude Puel is said to be a huge fan of the France youth international and is pushing to complete a loan deal for the player.

Sarr has been linked with a move to Premier League side Fulham in recent days but it seems they now have serious competition for the 21-year-old.

Sarr joined Chelsea from OGC Nice upon the expiration of his contract at the modest Ligue 1 club.
