Timo Werner news

Chelsea could sell 10 players this summer

Chelsea are reportedly prepared to part ways with 10 first-team stars as they look to recoup funds for additional purchases this summer.

The Blues have already signed Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech for a combined fee of £80m and they are expected to continue their spending spree.

Bayer Leverkusen attacker Kai Havertz has been tipped to join them and reports claim that the Blues may need to pay an initial fee of £70m.

According to Sky Sports News, the west London side need to offload players for any future signings and they have identified 10 players to sell.

Kepa Arrizabalaga, Jorginho and Antonio Rudiger are among the top names, who could be sold by the west London giants during the current transfer window.

Meanwhile, the futures of Andreas Christensen and Kurt Zouma are also being assessed with Frank Lampard wanting to strengthen the central defence.

Elsewhere, the club are expected to listen to offers for outcasts Emerson Palmieri, Victor Moses, Danny Drinkwater, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Michy Batshuayi.

Chelsea are assured of Champions League football after their top-four finish to the Premier League season. They were recently in action in the FA Cup final where they lost 2-1 to Arsenal.
