As the summer transfer window nears its end, Chelsea FC braces itself for more player departures.
With players already leaving Stamford Bridge, including big names like Kai Havertz, Mateo Kovacic, and N’golo Kante, the club could say goodbye to four more players. Here’s a detailed breakdown of the players who might leave Chelsea before the summer transfer window shuts down.
1. Callum Hudson-Odoi – Uncertain Future for the Talented Winger
Despite his immense potential, Callum Hudson-Odoi has struggled to secure a regular spot in the starting XI. Speculation surrounding his future has been rife, with potential suitors closely monitoring the situation. Recent developments include Chelsea rejecting a bid from Fulham for Hudson-Odoi and the winger seeking showdown talks with the club regarding his future. With just one year remaining on his contract, Hudson-Odoi will also discuss his options with Chelsea’s new manager before making a final decision. The club seems keen on selling him permanently during the summer transfer window.
2. Hakim Ziyech – Impressive Performances Marred by Injuries
Hakim Ziyech‘s time at Chelsea has been a mix of impressive performances and frustrating injuries. He faced tough competition for attacking positions and struggled with fitness issues during his first season at the club. Reports suggest interest from AC Milan and Ajax, paving the way for a potential transfer. Injuries have been a recurring theme throughout Ziyech’s career, and he has faced multiple spells on the sidelines due to various injuries.
3. Romelu Lukaku – Surprising Departure on the Horizon?
Despite playing a pivotal role in the squad, Romelu Lukaku‘s potential departure might surprise many. Ongoing negotiations with Inter Milan could influence his future, and while Lukaku prefers to stay in Europe, interest from clubs like Juventus and Saudi teams might sway the situation. His exit would leave a significant void in Chelsea’s attacking department.
4. Conor Gallagher – Fresh Start for the Young Midfielder
Conor Gallagher‘s departure from Stamford Bridge appears imminent, much to the chagrin of some fans who witnessed his impressive performances during loan spells at other clubs. Despite the head coach’s concerns, the board has decided to offload Gallagher, likely aiming to streamline the squad and usher in a new era under new head coach Mauricio Pochettino.
