The defender who shone for Nigeria at the Africa Cup of Nations and in the Confederations Cup was expected to get into the Chelsea team for the 2013/14 season but Jose Mourinho seems to have other options.
The 19-year-old was subsequently given jersey number 51 and is currently training with Chelsea’s U-21 team. Liverpool are believed to lead the queue of clubs that want him, which also includes Swansea and West Brom.
The Nigeria defender was on loan last season at Dutch club ADO Den Haag, where he played 27 league games.
Omeruo won the Afcon with Nigeria in February 2013.
