The Blues is looking to fund the signing of Haaland or Lukaku this summer and as a result, will be offloading a host of stars. Chelsea will hope to get £100m for the out-of-favor trio this summer as Olivier Giroud is also expected to leave the Bridge when his contract expires in June.
Haaland or Lukaku are understood to be Chelsea’s top targets while reports in Germany also link the West London club with an interest in Robert Lewandowski.
According to Matt Law of The Telegraph, the Blues are willing to sell Tammy Abraham for £40m at the end of the season as part of a strike reshuffle at Stamford Bridge.
Also, Olivier Giroud is set to leave the Blues when his contract expires in June. Meanwhile, the departures of Abraham and Giroud will reduce the club’s wage bill by around £200,000-a-week for a new striker to come in the summer.
Elsewhere in the squad, Chelsea are thought to be also willing to listen to offers for Kurt Zouma while AC Milan are expected to make Fikayo Tomori’s loan deal permanent for £25m that could rise to £30m.
The Blues, hence, could make around £100m resulting from the deals on these three players who are not viewed as regular starters by Thomas Tuchel.
Furthermore, Matt Law names Erling Haaland and Romelu Lukaku as the club’s top targets while citing German media’s reports on the Blues’ interest in Robert Lewandowski.
Meanwhile, Leicester City and West Ham are said to be the likeliest destinations for Abraham.
