The transfer window has been opened officially for over a month now and clubs are getting done with the summer business. Although we still have well over a month to go before the window shuts close Chelsea are yet to land any transfer target this summer.
So far, only Billy Gilmour’s loan deal to Norwich has been confirmed together with Victor Moses and Fikayo Tomori who have both left the club on permanent deals.
Despite a slow start to the summer transfer for the Blues, several names have been linked with moves away from Chelsea in this window.
Here are some of the names constantly linked with moves away from Stamford Bridge this summer as Chelsea look to cut their wage bill to enable them to add more forces to their ranks.
Some time ago, the Birmingham Mail claimed that Aston Villa will soon make a bid for their former player.
The striker has only played 19 minutes of football since February 20 and is unlikely to have a place in Thomas Tuchel’s plans anytime soon.
According to TuttoMercatoWeb, Emerson Palmieri has employed super-agent Pini Zahavi with the sole aim to secure his exit from Chelsea.
The left-back is attracting interest from Serie A teams, including Inter Milan, Lazio, and Napoli. But a recent report suggests that former Blues boss, who will take over AS Roma at the start of the next season is willing to add Emerson to his squad list.
Unlike Emerson, Chelsea are reportedly positive about keeping the Spaniard at the club, despite reported interest from clubs in Spain and Italy.
Tuchel is perfectly satisfied with having Alonso as a back-up to Ben Chilwell but due to his high wages compared to that of Emerson, he could as well be on the exit door if Blues receive a good offer for him.
The midfielder, who spent last season on loan with Napoli is set to leave Chelsea this summer, with Milan keen on the player they had on loan back in the 2018-19 season.
If it is another loan deal, however, Chelsea will have to extend his deal for another year so that he wouldn’t leave as a free agent next summer, though.
The reported negotiations with AC Milan have apparently been parked for the duration of Euro 2020.
The Serie A side has reportedly asked Chelsea to let Giroud go as a free agent despite a one-year extension he has been handed recently. But so far, it’s unclear whether the two parties have come to terms with the situation or not.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea are adamant about selling Hakim Ziyech after just one year at Stamford Bridge.
AC Milan, however, are apparently willing to take the Moroccan on loan, and it remains to be seen if the Blues might be tempted by such an offer.
