German outlet BILD claims Abramovich has since released the funds for Thomas Tuchel's men to complete the transfer of Haaland.

However, the west London club will have offload some attacking players before getting the transfer over the line.

It is believed the Blues have already earmarked the trio of Callum Hudson-Odoi, Tammy Abraham, and Hakim Ziyech for sale should they win the race to sign Haaland.

Among the three, it was Hudson-Odoi and Abraham who endured a frustrating campaign last season, with the former being limited to just seven Premier League matches.

Abraham, on the other hand, has barely featured for Chelsea since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel, with his last appearance coming in February.

The Englishman failed to feature in his side's FA Cup final against Leicester City and Champions League final vs Man City.

Ziyech, meanwhile, is a surprise inclusion in the list considering he played an influential role under Tuchel, making 39 appearances across competitions.
