According to The Sun, Chelsea are set for a massive clear-out this summer following the expected arrival of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig. Werner is to sign a five-year deal worth £200,000 a week with Chelsea as Frank Lampard’s Chelsea revolution gathers momentum.
The Blues had already splashed out £38million for Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech earlier in the year. The report claims as many as 11 Chelsea players will leave the club this summer as Lampard builds a team capable of challenging for titles.
Willian, who will be 32 in August, will be allowed to leave the club at the end of the season following the expiration of his Chelsea contract. The Brazilian has refused Chelsea’s offer of a two-year contract extension.
Pedro is also set to leave Chelsea at the end of the season, with Serie A club Roma the most likely destination. This will bring an end to his five-year stay at Stamford Bridge.
Jorginho will reportedly be allowed to leave for Juventus while Marcos Alonso will also be allowed to leave if the club receives a fee of £26 million. The Sun also claims Chelsea will listen to offers for Kepa Arrizabalaga despite spending a record fee of £71 million to sign him from Athletic Bilbao in the summer of 2018.
Ross Barkley, who has failed to nail down a regular starting place under Lampard, will also be allowed to leave with West Ham interested in the midfielder. The arrival of Werner means Chelsea will listen to offers for Michy Batshuayi.
Alvaro Morata, who is currently on loan at Atletic Madrid, will leave Chelsea permanently on July 1 after Atletico Madrid agreed to pay £48m for the striker.
Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, who spent the season on loan at Monaco, will be allowed to leave the club with Paris Saint-Germain interested in the midfielder. Davide Zappacosta could make his Roma loan permanent despite penning a new contract last summer.
