12 players Chelsea will sell as part of £200m fundraiser for Haaland pursuit

Chelsea have big plans ahead of the transfer window this summer but they have a mammoth squad.

With Thomas Tuchel in charge, the Blues have turned their season around and have one foot in the Champions League final after a 1-1 draw against Real Madrid in Spain.

They are also the favourites to beat West Ham and Liverpool to a top-four spot in the Premier League and take on Leicester City in the FA Cup final next month.

As a result, Stamford Bridge looks like an attractive place to be for transfer targets but there is one who the club craves more than anyone else.

Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland has left the Blues smitten with his performances this season but landing the Norway international will prove tough with most of Europe after his signature too.

However, with 12 players facing a summer exit – Chelsea can garner the necessary funds to bat away any competitors and make a whopping £200m in the process.

Tammy Abraham – £40m

The England striker is the most valued player who is set to be offloaded, with the Telegraph reporting that Chelsea have priced the 23-year-old at £40m amid interest from West Ham and Leicester.

Kurt Zouma – £30m

Zouma has seen his first-team appearances dwindle under Tuchel but there is no doubting his ability and Everton were keen on his services last year.

Fikayo Tomori – £25m, potentially rising to £30m


Loaned out to AC Milan, the defender has impressed San Siro chiefs who are ready to trigger a clause worth £25m, rising to £30m, to make his stay permanent, the Telegraph report.

Michy Batshuayi – £15m

The Belgium international has been loaned out a number of times and finds himself on the outskirts at Crystal Palace, but his prowess in front of goal has proved useful on the continent, which will help the Blues offload him.

Kenedy – £5m

A part of Granada's side that helped them reach the quarter-finals of the Europa League, the Brazilian's time at Chelsea appears to be over while the La Liga outfit would love him on a permanent basis.

Davide Zappacosta – £10m

    Danny Drinkwater – £5m

    It has been a disastrous spell for Drinkwater since joining Chelsea for close to £40m and some poor loans at Burnley and Aston Villa have not helped but the Blues remain keen on recouping some sort of fee in order to let him go.

    Victor Moses – £8m

    Once an integral part under Antonio Conte in Chelsea's Premier League-winning squad in 2017, Moses is now on the peripherals but has more than enough to offer somewhere.

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek – £25m


    The Fulham loanee has undoubted talent but injuries may have bested his time at Chelsea, but a fit Loftus-Cheek is unplayable at times and should command a hefty fee in the transfer window.

    Ross Barkley – £20m

    His form at Aston Villa has gone off the boil at a time their form has gone out the window but was excellent earlier in the season and would be a welcome addition to most teams in the Premier League.

    Ike Ugbo – £5m


    Fulham, Watford and Monaco are all chasing the young forward, who has been rattling in goals for Cercle Burrge this year in Belgium. Valued at £5m but a bidding war could be sparked.

    Baba Rahman – £7m

    Once regarded as one of the best up and coming talents in the Bundesliga but has never truly settled at Chelsea and is on his fifth spell away on loan but at 26 is capable of fulfilling his potential somewhere
