Tuchel To Put 10 Chelsea Stars Up For Sale This Summer Transfer Window

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel could put several first-team players up for sale this summer as he looks to build a Premier League title-challenging side for 2021/22.

The former Borussia Dortmund and PSG boss oversaw a fine run of unbeaten fixtures since replacing Frank Lampard but that was ended by West Brom on Saturday.

Here are 10 potential departures as director Marina Granovskaia will again be tasked with organising incoming and outgoing deals.

Kepa Arrizabalaga

The future of Kepa Arrizabalaga remains uncertain as the summer window approaches with Edouard Mendy holding onto the number one spot.

Emerson Palmieri

Football Italia report that both Inter and Napoli have been monitoring the progress of the left-back, who is entering the final year of his contract in London.


Despite his favour under both Sarri and Lampard, Jorginho could make his way back to Italy this summer as he continues to be linked with a move to Serie A.

Christian Pulisic

Tuchel stated that Pulisic could be utilised from the bench because of the impact he can have on tired defenders, which is unlikely to please the United States hero.

Tammy Abraham

Another player who has not been starting regularly of late is Tammy Abraham, who has slipped out of favour under Lampard due to the good form of Oliver Giroud.

Fikayo Tomori

Tuchel has admitted to not having considered Tomori’s return as he focuses on those at Stamford Bridge, with Milan having an option to buy him this summer.

Danny Drinkwater

His £35m move from Leicester in 2017 looks to have been a large mistake from the club, who could even allow the player to leave on a free this summer by paying off his wages.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek

The 25-year-old is likely to still get Premier League interest should he not be a part of Tuchel’s plans, which could see him leave in the summer.  

Michy Batshuayi

Although he did score for Belgium against Belarus during the international break, it is unlikely that he will return to play a key role at Chelsea next season.

Tiemoue Bakayoko

It is unlikely that the 26-year-old will return to play a key role at Chelsea during the last year of his deal there, and could end up leaving on a permanent deal this summer.
