Chelsea are ready to sell Emerson, Zouma, Batshuayi & Barkley to raise over £100m’
Chelsea could reportedly raise more than £100m from player sales during this summer’s transfer window, according to Football London.
The Blues were unable to improve their squad ahead of the 2019-20 campaign due to a transfer ban, but the suspension was lifted in time for the January window.
Frank Lampard’s side decided against boosting their squad in the early stages of 2020, but the capital giants are expected to be active during this summer’s market.
Emerson Palmieri, Kurt Zouma, Ross Barkley and Michy Batshuayi are expected to be sold ahead of next season, with the Blues believing that they could raise just over £100m if all four were allowed to seek pastures new.
The report claims that the additional funds could ultimately be put towards new signings as the Blues look to bring a left-back, an attacking midfielder and a striker to Stamford Bridge.
RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner and Lyon’s Moussa Dembele are both said to be on the club’s list of forward targets, with Olivier Giroud also expected to depart on a free transfer.
