Apparently, Schalke sporting director Christian Heidel had a request turned down by Chelsea boss Marina Granovskaia as 'The Blues' were reluctant to let the defender go.
The 22-year-old, who was on loan at Borussia Mönchengladbach from 2015 to 2017, has slipped down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge since Maurizio Sarri took over as head coach last summer.
This season, Christensen has been limited to just two Premier League games and 14 appearances in total.
