Chelsea to offload several players in the January transfer window

Graham Potter

The start of Mauricio Pochettino’s tenure at Chelsea has been characterized by both highs and lows. Notable victories, such as the 4-1 win over Tottenham and the 4-4 draw against Manchester City, have been highlighting the team’s potential. However, they have also been faceing challenges, as seen in their recent match against Newcastle United. Where they appeared to be in a period of adjustment and finding their rhythm.

The report mentions that Mauricio Pochettino might need to free up space and funds if he decides to bring in new players during the January transfer window. It suggests five players who could potentially leave Stamford Bridge in this scenario.

Players to depart Chelsea

Despite not having made an appearance this season due to an injury sustained late in preseason, and despite Chelsea’s notably poor defensive errors thus far, Trevoh Chalobah may encounter challenges in reclaiming a spot in the lineup.

Malang Sarr is so low in the hierarchy that Mauricio Pochettino seems to have overlooked his existence entirely. Regrettably, Sarr has earned a reputation as one of Chelsea’s most disappointing signings. Having played a mere eight Premier League matches in the past four years with the club.

Ian Maatsen has been quite transparent about his future with the Blues. In fact, he came close to departing during the summer in a potential return to Burnley. There he dedicated the entire previous season refining his skills under Vincent Kompany. Despite Chelsea being open to a £30 million deal, Maatsen turned it down. Thus, opting instead to strive for a spot within Pochettino’s squad.

Following his recovery from a severe ACL injury last season, Armando Broja made a remarkable impact by scoring in a mere 19 minutes against Fulham. Since then, the 22-year-old has quietly emerged as a sought-after asset in the transfer market. Both Fulham and West Ham have expressed interest in the talented striker. With the latter being quite transparent about their desire to acquire him.

Having joined the Blues for £30 million in January this year, there’s a chance that Noni Madueke could depart the club on loan a year later. Especially with the inclusion of Cole Palmer in the squad. Despite delivering notable performances for the Young Lions in recent months, the former PSV Eindhoven star has been somewhat overshadowed by his compatriot and may find himself on the periphery.
