After leading Chelsea to European glory with a classy victory over Manchester City in the Champions League final at the Estádio do Dragao on Saturday, Thomas Tuchel wants to strengthen his squad with up to four new additions at striker, centre-back, centre midfield and wing-back.
The consequences could see as many as eleven of Chelsea’s fringe players leaving this summer, either on loan or permanently.
And reports by Daily Mail have suggested that Christian Pulisic, Fikayo Tomori, Olivier Giroud, Tammy Abraham and Ross Barkley amongst fringe players could be on their way out of Stamford Bridge.
After impressive five-month loan, AC Milan are expressed their interest in make Tomori temporary deal to permanent and they have already held talks with Chelsea and a fee of £24million has been mentioned while the England international centre-back has been offered a five-year deal by the Italians once the pay structure on his fee can be agreed.
Olivier Giroud, whose current deal with the Blues expires next month, set to complete a propose switch to Italian giant AC Milan.
The Frenchman who netted four goals for the Blues last season, has plenty of Premier League suitors plus ones in Italy and France but at 34 he is looking for a two-year deal and AC Milan reportedly ready to offer him his desired offers.
With the Blues want to recruit their centre-forward with superstar striker like Romelu Lukaku, Erling Haaland and Harry Kane, Tammy Abraham is expected to depart from Stamford Bridge this summer.
The Englishman, who value £40million by Stamford Bridge outfit, has been subject interest from Aston Villa, West Ham and Wolverhampton.
Due to lacking of playing time or using him as a potential wing-back, Christian Pulisic could consider depart from Stamford Bridge this summer.
The USA skipper who establish himself as one of the most ferocious attackers in the Premier League, back to his scintillating best towards the end of last season after injury-free run.
The 22-year-old attacking midfielder ended the campaign with six goals and four assists across all competitions for the Blues.
Another loan move is not on the cards for the 25-year-old powerful midfielder. If he is not fancied by Thomas Tuchel he will look for a permanent move. Everton, Southampton and Aston Villa have interest in sign the Blues star but the 25-year-old is on high wages.
As he looking for regular playing time, Billy Gilmour is likely to depart from Stamford Bridge this summer on a season-long loan deal, with Newcastle and Southampton, who saw a loan move for young Scotland midfield maestro fall through in January, expected to make a move this summer.
Was one of West Brom’s best performers last season following on from successful loans at Charlton and Swansea. Thomas Tuchel would like to take a closer look at him before making any decision but Crystal Palace would like to sign him now.
Has one year left on his contract and has growing interest from Italy. Atalanta are among the frontrunners as they want an attacking full-back to replace Belgian Robin Gosens, who has been offered and is admired by a number of English clubs.
The 26-year-old again has plenty of interest from Italian clubs such as Juventus, Napoli and Inter Milan. Could yet be offered as a makeweight in Chelsea’s pursuit of Lukaku but cash-strapped Inter would prefer deals to be done separately.
Has one year left on his contract and after a number of loans wants a permanent option but his agent has admitted that is proving hard to find.
Has plenty of talent but a lack of consistency and questions about how he looks after himself off the pitch have raised doubts about Barkley’s future under Thomas Tuchel. West Ham have an interest but may prefer an initial loan.
