Report: Chelsea gets rid of 11 players to complete new deals, today Saturday 6 June 2020 05:08 pm

Chelsea are preparing for a huge transfer season this summer after agreeing in principle with Timo Werner, Leipzig striker, to move to the London club for 54 million pounds, as he needs to get rid of 11 players.

Germany striker and Leipzig striker will sign a five-year contract worth 200,000 pounds a week with the Blues.

Chelsea had already signed Moroccan Hakim Ziash for 38 million pounds from Ajax Amsterdam in February.

Chelsea have so far spent 92 million pounds in the deals with the prospect that he will spend more, if he signs with left-back Leicester City Ben Chilwell.

However, Chelsea need to get rid of several players to provide the necessary funds and places in his squad, as Brazilian winger Willian, who will be 32 years old next August, will leave for free after he refused the club’s offer to extend his contract for one year.

The same thing will apply to the Spaniard Pedro, and he will be allowed to leave in light of Rome’s interest in contracting him, according to the British newspaper “Mirror”, as well as the departure of Juergenio to his former art director Maurizio Sarri in Juventus.

Lampard has agreed to sell left-back Marcus Alonso, wanted by former Chelsea coach Antonio Conte in Inter Milan, as the club requests 26 million pounds to dispense with the defender, whose contract continues until 2023.

The club will also hear offers from Spanish goalkeeper Kiba Arezabalaga, who became the most expensive goalkeeper in the world when he joined the London club in 2018 from Athletic Bilbao for 71.4 million pounds.

Tottenham are also interested in signing Chelsea player Kurt Zuma for 25 million pounds, and David Moyes, coach of West Ham, is keen to include former Everton midfielder Ross Barclay, who failed to gain a place in the starting line-up with Lampard.

And joining Werner, who has scored 25 goals in the Bundesliga this season, means the end of Belgian Mitchie Patchway’s career with Chelsea.

On the other hand, Chelsea will also benefit from several loaned players, as it will obtain 48 million pounds from Atletico Madrid, who finally signed Spanish striker Alvaro Morata.

Chelsea will also sell Timo Baquayoco to Paris Saint-Germain once his loan is expired from Monaco, and it is expected that the loan of David Zapacosta to Rome will turn into a final contract that will benefit Chelsea as well.
