Graham Potter puts nine Chelsea players up for sale, including Boehly signing

Chelsea have put nine members of Graham Potter’s first-team up for sale ahead of the summer window, with the club hoping to recoup some cash after a £600m splurge.

The London club spent £320m in the January transfer window, following a £280m outlay last summer.

Though the club have given long-term contracts to players to spread out the costs, they are wary of complying with new UEFA Financial Fair Play rules.

Potter is keen to trim his team, aware that he will have too many players to keep happy at the club.

Christian Pulisic, a £56m signing from Borussia Dortmund in 2018, is set to leave as he’ll have just one year remaining on his contract this summer.

Manchester United and Newcastle United showed interest in signing the winger on loan in January.

Hakim Ziyech saw a dream move to Paris Saint-Germain collapse due to a paperwork issue and he wants to make a permanent exit at the end of the season.

Kalidou Kouliably, a £33m signing from Napoli only seven months ago, is deemed surplus to requirements by Potter after the arrival of Badiashile and they will now will listen to offers.

Romelu Lukaku is expected to leave on reduced terms after his £97m move to Stamford Bridge in 2021, while Aubameyang could complete a loan move to Major League Soccer.

According to ESPN, Chelsea will listen to offers for Mateo Kovacic and Hudson-Odoi, while N’Golo Kante is yet to agree a new deal and is out of contract at the end of the campaign.

The most controversial exit could be Mason Mount, who is yet to sign a new deal.
