Revealed: The seven players up for sale in Chelsea’s transfer window ‘phase two’ including pair signed just 12 months ago

The Blues are looking to continue their clearout this summer

Chelsea are ready to sell another seven players as they look to clear out their bloated squad ahead of the new season, it has been revealed, despite having already overseen something of a fire sale in west London.

The Blues, who finished a horrendous 12th place last season (their worst finish in Premier League history), have already seen plenty of sales this summer.

Mateo Kovacic has joined Manchester City (for a fee of £25m) while Kai Havertz has made the move across London to Arsenal (for £65m).

Meanwhile, Ruben Loftus Cheek has joined former Chelsea man Fikayo Tomori at AC Milan, netting the club a further £17m. Senegal pair Kalidou Koulibaly and Edouard Mendy have also left the club, heading to Al-Hilal and Al-Ahli respectively, while N’Golo Kante has departed for Al-Ittihad on a free transfer.

Mason Mount is also set to leave, joining Manchester United in a deal worth £55m, though Hakim Ziyech’s own departure has fallen through after he failed a medical with Al-Nassr.

They are far from finished, however, with the London Evening Standard detailing the ‘phase two’ of their summer plans to come.

All of Romelu Lukaku, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Christian Pulisic, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Trevoh Chalobah, Cesar Azpilicueta and Marc Cucurella could depart, with Azpilicueta set to join Atletico Madrid and Christian Pulisic in talks with AC Milan.

Attentions will also turn to additions. Three new faces are already with the Chelsea squad, with Christopher Nkunku, Malo Gusto and Nicolas Jackson all having arrived.

Now, they are looking to revamp their midfield, with Celta Vigo’s Gabri Veiga and Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo both their top targets in a bid to improve on last season under new boss Mauricio Pochettino.
