Chelsea Transfer Dilemma: Players on the Chopping Block

Antonio Nusa

In a surprising turn of events, Chelsea are set to offload seven players, including two summer signings.

Despite a staggering expenditure of £860 million across three transfer windows, Chelsea find themselves in 12th place.

Mauricio Pochettino’s first summer in charge witnessed a £397 million splurge, introducing talents like, Christopher Nkunku, and Robert Sanchez.

However, the new additions failed to catapult Chelsea into the desired position, prompting Pochettino to call for more reinforcements.

The latest reports indicate that as many as seven players are now deemed surplus at Stamford Bridge. Among them are Axel Disasi and Malo Gusto, both acquired in the summer transfer window.

Chelsea ready to offload these players.

Disasi, a £38 million signing from Monaco, has made 14 appearances. On the other hand, Gusto, secured for £30 million from Lyon, has featured 11 times.

Chelsea are reportedly open to offers for Disasi and Gusto in the upcoming transfer windows, aiming to secure higher-quality replacements.

The list of dispensable players also includes Armando Broja, Ian Maatsen, Noni Madueke, and Marc Cucurella, the latter arriving for an eye-watering £63 million from Brighton but failing to impress.

While Nicolas Jackson has struggled to find his form, Chelsea seem inclined to afford him more time to prove himself. Nevertheless, the priority for the club in the January transfer window is securing a new forward to bolster their attacking options.

Pochettino, visibly discontent with the team’s performance, emphasized the need for analysis and improvement. “We need to talk and try to improve in the next transfer market“. He stated to the BBC after a disappointing defeat to Everton.

As the club navigates through a challenging season, the focus now shifts to strategic player exits and targeted acquisitions to revive Chelsea’s aspirations in the Premier League.

Chelsea’s struggles, despite significant investments, raise questions about the effectiveness of recent signings and the overall team dynamics.

With Pochettino at the helm, the club faces a critical juncture in the quest for a turnaround. The impending departures and potential new arrivals will undoubtedly shape the narrative of Chelsea’s season as they strive to reclaim a coveted spot among the Premier League elites.
