Chelsea boss Frank Lampard may well be tempted to recall Ethan Ampadu in the January transfer window.
Wales fans have praised Chelsea’s Ethan Ampadu after his display for them against Slovakia last night.
Ampadu has struggled for game time at club level this season, after Chelsea loaned him out to Red Bull Leipzig over the summer.
Wales boss Ryan Giggs has stuck by the Chelsea man though, with the youngster starting last night.
Ampadu repaid his manager’s faith by putting in a strong performance against Slovakia, although he wasn’t able to help his side win.
Wales only managed to pick up a 1-1 draw against Slovakia, which means they still face a fight to qualify for Euro 2020.
But Chelsea man Ampadu was one of the players who impressed the most on the night.

Ampadu has been fantastic— scumbag (@koolthing_) October 10, 2019
it’s official ampadu is world class— Stanley Yelnats (@_Cheech0) October 10, 2019
Huge, huge half of football for us. Joniesta been the best of the bunch. Think Danny James, Connor Roberts and Ampadu have been brilliant too. Bit shaky defensively but we’re more than good enough to win this. #SVKWAL— ️ Liam ️ (@PhoenixGamesYT) October 10, 2019
Ethan Ampadu needs away from Chelsea asap if he’s to fulfill his potential. He’s class. No point him being on loan to bench it either.— The Chris Knowles (@TheChrisKnowles) October 10, 2019
Ampadu deserves first team— ___ģĽįťch (@BorNNy_En) October 10, 2019
Jesus, it’s criminal that @ethanamp4 isn’t getting game time for Chelski, let alone Leipzig. The boy has everything imo and due to Chelski’s policy they are ruining his career. Granted Kante is awesome but ampadu offers more as a package #needsamove #SLOWAL— Dassssler (@darren2676) October 10, 2019
It remains to be seen whether Ampadu will be relocated by Chelsea in January now, as his talent clearly merits more game time than he has received this term.
Ampadu is yet to feature in a competitive game for Leipzig, and Chelsea will want him to receive more game time before January, when it is believed they are able to recall him.
