There are several players who will not stay at Chelsea after the summer transfer window. And there are very pretty names among the undesirables of Blues. We also have an idea of the clubs that could decide to recover them.
David Ospina has seen his contract come to an end with SSC Napoli. And the Neapolitan club is struggling to extend that of Alex Meret, which goes until June 2023. He is therefore looking for a new goalkeeper. Kepa Arrizabalaga is one of the players targeted by the Italian management.
Understudy of Édouard Mendy, the Spanish goalkeeper certainly intends to find playing time. Admittedly, he would not be certain of regaining number 1 status in Naples. However, he will have more chances to shake up the hierarchy than at Chelsea.
Sent to Venice last season, Ethan Ampadu made a strong impression. The young central defender quickly established himself as a starter within the club which played in Serie A. Back on loan at Chelsea, he will struggle to have more playing time.
The Welsh player could therefore decide to leave! Especially since Fiorentina would be interested in his profile. He would therefore find a championship he now knows and above all he would change dimension, since the Viola will play in the Europa Conference League this season.
He is clearly no longer in Thomas Tuchel’s plans. Matt Miazga has been on loan for long seasons already. The 26-year-old certainly intends to revive his career a bit. He could decide to return to his native country: the United States.
American international on 22 occasions, Matt Miazga would be in the sights of FC Cincinnati. It could be very interesting for him to join MLS. He would have a lot more playing time and enough to make an indisputable place with his selection.
FC Barcelona is looking for a new left-back. Xavi intends to find a strong competitor in Jordi Alba. And Marcos Alonso would be among the targets of Blaugrana. Under contract until June 2023, the Spanish player will not cost very much.
Indeed, Chelsea will not take the risk of letting him go free. And it’s a challenge that must make Marcos Alonso dream! Barça chained the very big blows during this transfer window. The 31-year-old could hope to win a few more titles in Catalonia.
Last season, Baba Rahman played with Reading. He also had an important place in the starting lineup of the Championship club, since he started 29 times in the league. And the English club hopes to keep it at the end of this summer transfer window.
A situation that should make Chelsea happy! The Blues no longer count on the left side. They could also raise the stakes a bit since Middlesbrough and Augsburg are also on the case.
It’s hard to imagine him staying one more season at Chelsea. Ross Barkley was used very little by Thomas Tuchel during the last exercise. The English midfielder certainly expects to leave. And why not bounce back to Everton?
After a very complicated season, the Toffees managed to save themselves at the very end of the championship. From now on, Everton would certainly not be against the idea of strengthening to return to the top of the Premier League. With that in mind, it might be worth reviving Ross Barkley.
Chelsea decided to recall him from his loan to Flamengo last January. Kenedy returned to make up for Ben Chilwell’s long injury. However, he did not play much. And the Brazilian left midfielder will be on the start this summer.
Espanyol Barcelona would have targeted the profile of the 26-year-old player. It wouldn’t be surprising if Kenedy agreed to go to Spain. He certainly intends to impose himself in a club, for many years. And that will not be the case at Chelsea!
The recent Italian champion wants to activate in this transfer window. In addition to forcing to recover Charles De Ketelaere, the Rossoneri targeted the profile of Hakim Ziyech. He could come and settle in the right offensive lane of the Lombard club and establish himself as an indisputable holder.
Far from stringing together matches at Chelsea, the Moroccan player could be seduced by a departure for Serie A. The 29-year-old could very quickly become one of the executives in Stefano Pioli’s squad.
After Richarlison’s departure, Everton are looking for a new striker. The Toffees could look closely at Michy Batshuayi’s situation. The Belgian striker still belongs to Chelsea. However, it is not part of Thomas Tuchel’s plans.
On loan last season to Besiktas, the 28-year-old was still able to afford 14 goals and five assists in 33 league games. He could therefore offer valuable services to Everton!
