One senior Chelsea player ‘destined to leave club’ this summer

An insight into the outings at Chelsea this summer has been provided on Tuesday.

Todd Boehly has already sanctioned two major summer signings for the Blues. Chelsea have signed Raheem Sterling from Premier League rivals Manchester City.

This was followed by the west Londoners agreeing a deal with Napoli for Serie A star, Kalidou Koulibaly.

Chelsea do not appear to be done there, either, with another centre-back or two potentially on their way to Stamford Bridge before the window slams shut next month.

Both Presnel Kimpembe and Jules Kounde are believed to be of interest this summer, as well as another wide option.

On the outgoings front, meanwhile, Chelsea have loaned Romelu Lukaku back to Inter Milan.

They have also seen Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen leave for free, whilst Cesar Azpilicueta’s future is also up in the air.

However, it appears as though at least one more name is certain to head for the Stamford Bridge exit door this summer.

That man, according to Fabrizio Romano, is Hakim Ziyech. When discussing Chelsea’s summer departures, the Italian had this to say:

“For now, however, the situation with Werner and Christian Pulisic has gone quiet, but surprises cannot be ruled out in August,” said Romano.

“The one I expect to leave is Hakim Ziyech. AC Milan want him but for the moment they are focused on Charles de Ketelaere as their priority target, and then they will understand the conditions of the Ziyech deal.

“With Werner and Pulisic, the decision will be up to Thomas Tuchel; in any case, Ziyech is destined to leave the club.”
