Players Chelsea want to offload this summer

Fikayo Tomori has already joined AC Milan on a permanent deal after impressing the Serie A side during his loan spell with them last campaign.

Others who could still be sold are Tammy Abraham, Kepa Arizabalaga, Emerson Palmeri, Ross Barkley, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Michy Batshuayi.

Sources claim the west London club might slow down on their move to have both Jorginho and Rudiger sold as they are in the last 12 months of their deals with the Blues.

But the Euro 2020 midfielder's agent Joao Santos can confirm that his client wants to remain at the Bridge beyond the expiration of his deal except if they don't get the right offer.
