Chelsea exodus: Ten more players in line for summer exit

Chelsea’s summer firesale is in full swing, having already sealed the departures of Kai Havertz, Edouard Mendy, Kalidou Koulibaly, N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Mason Mount.

However, Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano claims there could be ten more exits this summer as the Blues continue their efforts to start with a clean financial slate next season under Mauricio Pochettino.

Cesar Azpilicueta is on the verge of leaving Stamford Bridge after a decade, with Atletico Madrid reaching an agreement over his transfer.

Inter Milan were leading the race for the Spaniard before Atletico hijacked the deal. The transfer is expected to be completed in the coming days.

Trevoh Chalobah’s future has also been subject to intense speculation, and the Blues no longer count on him in their plans.

Inter have been registered with an interest in the English defender, but their priority target is Atalanta centre-back Merih Demiral.

Other notable names that Chelsea are planning to offload are Romelu Lukaku, Christian Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Lukaku is steadfast on returning to Inter after spending two years on loan with the Italian giants.

The Nerazzurri have been locked in talks with Chelsea over a summer transfer, with the Londoners demanding €30 million for his transfer.

Inter have proposed another deal with a mandatory buy option on a long-term contract. They are also looking to pay his fee in instalments.

Things continue to spiral down for Ziyech after he reportedly failed his medical tests with Al-Nassr ahead of a lucrative transfer to Saudi Arabia.

Chelsea do not view the Moroccan star in their plans and will sort out a new solution.

Pulisic also appears to be on his way out after struggling at Stamford Bridge. AC Milan are in advanced talks to secure his signature, having received the go-ahead from the United States star.

The Rossoneri will continue their efforts to reach an agreement with Chelsea over the transfer fee.

Aubameyang has become an outcast at Chelsea and is surplus to requirements.

Ethan Ampadu, David Datro Fofana and Malang Sarr are also on the chopping block.
