Four Potential Deals Chelsea Could Seal before the Transfer Deadline Day
Chelsea are expecting a busy end to the transfer window, with some planned arrivals and departures to finish on a positive note.
New owner Todd Boehly is not afraid to gamble and is also looking to cash in by reducing the number of players in the final days of his first transfer window.
Chelsea have already signed players like Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly and Marc Cucurella, while Wesley Fofana will soon join Leicester City.
There are also some planned departures as the Blues work on deals with other clubs to either release players permanently or loan them out for the season.
There are four possible departures before the transfer deadline:
The most high-profile departure is expected to be winger Callum Hudson-Odoi, who has struggled for game time under Thomas Tuchel since he took over the club in January 2021.
Hudson-Odoi is expected to move to Bayer Leverkusen in Germany, as he has previously been linked with other Bundesliga clubs such as Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.
Ethan Ampadu may also leave the club soon as he is heading to Italy to re-sign on a loan in Serie A.
The 21-year-old played for Venezia last season and before that for Sheffield United and RB Leipzig.
Conor Gallagher’s future at Chelsea remains unclear, although he was given several first-team opportunities under Tuchel earlier in the season.
There are links to a move to Everton as part of a deal that would see Anthony Gordon move to another team, while Crystal Palace are still interested in taking him back to Selhurst Park.
Armando Broja is another young player who could leave Chelsea on loan, having spent last season on loan at Southampton.
Chelsea are said to want to extend his contract before sending him out on loan, and there may be interest in him from the Premier League.
The Blues will be very busy in the final days of the transfer window and will be looking to strengthen in certain areas while giving their young players a chance in Europe.
