Report Names The EIGHT Chelsea Players Who ‘Could Be Sold’ At The End Of The Season

Kalidou Koulibaly and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang “could be sold” along with six other Chelsea players next summer, according to the Evening Standard.

Financial Fairplay considerations mean that the Blues will have to balance the books, especially if they do miss out on Champions League qualification.

In addition to Koulibaly and Aubameyang, the likes of Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Conor Gallagher, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Edouard Mendy could all be heading for the exit door.

Koulibaly only joined from Napoli for £34m in the summer but he has struggled to come to terms with the pace of the Premier League, with January recruit Benoit Badiashile having already moved ahead of him in the pecking order.

Aubameyang was very much a Thomas Tuchel signing, and there was even talk that he could leave in January, but the former Gunners striker is likely to be on his way come the end of the season.

Pulisic has attracted admiring glances from Manchester United, while Conor Gallagher is known to be a target for West Ham, Everton, Newcastle and even Liverpool. Arsenal have also been mentioned as a potential suitor for Hudson-Odoi.
