DENIS ZAKARIA is heading for talks over his Chelsea future after failing to play a single minute under Thomas Tuchel OR Graham Potter.
The summer loanee from Juventus insists "I believe in myself 100 per cent" but has not even made 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 Switzerland anchorman, 25, was linked with Manchester United and Arsenal when he was with Borussia Monchengladbach but instead joined Juve in January this year.
He played 13 times in his half-season for the Italian giants, notching a goal and an assist.
But after signing for the Blues under Tuchel on September 1 he is now way down Potter's list of midfield options.
