Chelsea to offload 6 players to fund Havertz move

Chelsea plotting to offload six players to fund record-breaking move for Kai Havertz

July 7, 2020 By Ali M.
The Blues are eager to land the Bundesliga sensation this summer and are prepared to sell several players in order to raise funds for a move.

Chelsea are building an immensely promising squad for next season and already have their eyes set on another spectacular talent. That man is Kai Havertz, the Bayer Leverkusen sensation has is sought after by Europe's elites after his tremendous 2019/20 campaign. According to reports out of Britain (as per the Daily Mail), the Blues are read to launch a move for the 21-year-old.

One thing working in the London giants' favor is the financial ramification the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the beautiful game. While the majority of Europe's clubs are short on cash due to the coronavirus, Chelsea are said to be in a better position in comparisons with their rivals as the transfer ban they were hit with last summer forced them to keep their funds in the bank.

Nonetheless, having already made two high-profile signings in the form of Ziyech and Werner, Lampard's side will need to offload players in order to fund a Havertz transfer. As many as six players are said to be on the chopping block. 

Due to the rise of Abraham and acquisition of Werner, the club are understandably ready to cash in on Michy Batshuayi. The Belgian forward has fallen down the pecking order; thus, a decision to cut him loose will raise no eyebrows.

Additionally, both Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri could be on their way out as neither have been convincing in the fullback role as of late. Danny Drinkwater, Tiemoue Bakayoko, and Kenedy; three Chelsea players who are out on loan at Aston Villa, Monaco, and Getafe respectively; might not be returning to Stamford Bridge. 

Bayer Leverkusen are demanding $112.3M for the German, which would make him the Blues' most expensive signing in history, but it is unclear whether the London giants can match this valuation. Regardless, the prospect of having Ziyech, Werner, and Havertz in one squad will strike fear in the hearts of their rivals. As for now, the club's main focus is on their upcoming game: a tricky trip to Crystal Palace amid the Premier League's heated top-four race.
