Chelsea's potential offloading list

Pochettino's exit from the club was reportedly influenced by the management's inclination to offload two of their homegrown talents.

Trevoh Chalobah and Conor Gallagher have emerged as potential candidates for transfer this summer. Gallagher's contract is set to expire in 2025, and negotiations for an extension have been stagnant.

The potential arrival of another striker opens the door for Armando Broja to seek opportunities elsewhere.

Despite a challenging season with Fulham where he struggled for game time, Chelsea values Broja at approximately £35m.

Ian Maatsen's successful loan spell at Borussia Dortmund has raised interest in his permanent departure from Chelsea.

Dortmund could activate his £35m release clause to secure his services permanently. Similarly, Omari Hutchinson, instrumental in Ipswich Town's promotion last season, is deemed surplus to requirements at Chelsea and is expected to depart permanently rather than being loaned out again.

Several high-earning players are also set to be offloaded, including Hakim Ziyech, Romelu Lukaku, Kepa Arrizabalaga, and Malang Sarr.

Among them, Lukaku, who commands a hefty weekly wage of £340,000, is reportedly targeted by Antonio Conte's Napoli.

Chelsea under Pochettino's management are poised to part ways with key players to streamline the squad and potentially make room for new signings.

Chalobah, Gallagher, Broja, Maatsen, and Hutchinson are among those likely to be moved on, either permanently or on loan, while Ziyech, Lukaku, Arrizabalaga, and Sarr are deemed surplus to requirements and are set to be sold.

As Enzo Maresca takes the reins at Chelsea, there is a clear vision for the club's future. Maresca's plans involve strategic squad restructuring, with an emphasis on strengthening key positions and rejuvenating the team with fresh talent.

The potential signings and offloading of players reflect a proactive approach aimed at building a competitive and balanced squad capable of challenging for top honors.
