Transfer Deals: Five talented Chelsea players who could leave in January transfer window
As top clubs in Europe await another transfer window, Chelsea have been linked with many top players across different leagues but with the quality of players possessed by Frank Lampard, some players will have to leave if any new signing is made.
Chelsea were Premier League highest spender during the last transfer window and it won’t come as a surprise if the London club compete against top teams again.
With the huge numbers of talented players in the disposal of Frank Lampard, we’ve decided to reveal five players that might be leaving the club either on loan or on a permanent deal.
Billy Gilmour: The young midfielder showed Chelsea fans how talented he was last season but has not been able to get back in the team following knee surgery in the summer.
The arrival of Kai Havertz has also cast more doubt on his future at the Bridge as he is not just behind the Germany international but also behind Jorginho and Kovacic.
He could end up going out on loan for at least six months.
Antonio Rudiger: Rudiger played an important role under Frank Lampard last season but this season has seen him become a part-time player as the arrival of Thiago Silva and the form of Kurt Zouma have not been helpful.
Some big teams are monitoring his situation and he might be leaving on a permanent deal.
Fikayo Tomori: Young Chelsea graduate, Fikayo Tomori departure from Chelsea in the summer transfer window depends on Rudiger’s future with the club.
Chelsea will not be ready to release both players at the same time but Tomori might be going out on loan as Leeds United have been reported to be his next club.
Danny Drinkwater: Chelsea had many reasons to sign him while he was in the heart of Leicester City midfield with Kante but he has not been able to replicate his form at Stamford Bridge.
The central midfielder has been playing for the Under-23 and will be moving on from Chelsea if a suitable offer comes up.
Baba Rahman: Just like Drinkwater, Baba Rahman future at Chelsea is not having any light at the end of the tunnel as the Ghanaian is currently not past of the first team squad.
His future now depends on any club interested to buy and he will also be willing to leave.
