DENIS ZAKARIA is headed for talks over his future at Chelsea after not playing a single minute under Thomas Tuchel OR Graham Potter.
The summer-loan recruit from Juventus insists “I believe in myself 100 per cent” but hasn’t even made it to the bench since Potter took over four weeks ago.
And transfer expert Fabrizio Romano claims Zakaria’s predicament will soon be discussed within the club.
The Swiss presenter, 25, was linked with Manchester United and Arsenal before joining Juve from Borussia Monchengladbach in January this year.
During his half-time he made 13 appearances for the Italian giants, recording one goal and one assist.
But after joining the Blues under Tuchel in September, he is now at the bottom of Potter’s list of midfield options.
Zakaria opened up about his situation when the ex-Brighton boss was appointed just a week after his own arrival
And, at least publicly, he claims he’s willing to be patient for his chance.
He told Evering Standard from London: “I’m waiting for my moment and I want to prove that I can play in this team.
“I want to help this team win and win trophies.
“That’s the most important. I want to win trophies and help the team win – and if I get the chance to play, I’ll give 100 percent to help.
“That’s the biggest point and after that we’ll see what happens in the end.”
