Chelsea are expected to move on a number of fringe players from Graham Potter’s squad in the summer transfer window as they look to reinvest and strengthen in key positions
Chelsea look set for yet another busy summer transfer window as Todd Boehly aims to trim down Graham Potter’s squad whilst adding key reinforcements in crucial areas of the team.
The west Londoners have spent more money on new signings than any other Premier League club since Boehly’s arrival at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have been hampered by injuries this season with a number of key players missing a lot of fixtures which is one reason for their poor performance in the Premier League.
Boehly will already be planning for a busy summer transfer window that could see as many as 10 players leave Stamford Bridge.
The likes of Romelu Lukaku, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Edouard Mendy, Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic are all facing uncertain futures at Chelsea and could see the club receive a huge transfer windfall by selling them this summer.
The Blues would take a huge financial hit by selling Lukaku ahead of next season after he failed to impress following his £98million return to Stamford Bridge in 2021.
Ziyech was close to a move to Paris Saint-Germain in January but a deal collapsed late in the transfer window, with the Moroccan winger likely to leave ahead of the 2023/24 campaign.
According to CIES Football Observatory, the following players could see the Blues receive a combined figure of £182million to reinvest in Potter’s squad.
- Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – £5.2million
- Baba Rahman – £1.5million
- Ruben Loftus-Cheek – £13.2million
- Edouard Mendy – £22million
- Hakim Ziyech – £17.6million
- Christian Pulisic – £35.2million
- Mason Mount – £61.7million
- Romelu Lukaku – £17.6million
- Malang Sarr – £7million
- Tiemoue Bakayoko – £800k
