Graham Potter set to axe THREE Chelsea stars as part of major Todd Boehly shake-up
| Last updated
Graham Potter is reportedly set to axe THREE Chelsea stars as part of a major Todd Boehly shake-up.
The Blues are currently languishing in 10th place in the table amid a terrible Premier League campaign this season.
They've already lost seven league games this term, with Potter's team bouncing back from their defeat at Fulham with four points over Crystal Palace and Liverpool.
With their precarious league position, Boehly has wasted no time in the transfer window, splashing the cash to bring in new talent.
Joao Felix, Benoit Badiashile, Noni Madueke and Mykhailo Mudryk, among others, have all joined the Stamford Bridge outfit this month.
Felix, who was sent off on his debut, arrived on a loan deal from Atletico Madrid while Mudryk moved to England in a deal worth £88.5 million.
But it appears Chelsea will have to offload some deadwood in order to make room for their new players and eventual future signings.
According to reports via The Mirror, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Kai Havertz could all depart Chelsea in the near future.
Bakayoko, who is still on the club's books having been on loan at AC Milan, AS Monaco and Napoli, could finally complete a permanent transfer.
He has 18 months on his current deal and is attracting interest from Turkish side Adana Demirspor.
The French midfielder cost Chelsea £40 million and has spent just one season at the club.
Aubameyang, meanwhile, can only secure a move away from Chelsea at the end of the season, having already played for two clubs this season.
He could, though, remain in England's top flight with Unai Emery's Aston Villa keen on reuniting with the forward following their time together at Arsenal.
He's bagged just one league goal since his switch from Barcelona.
As for Havertz, it's believed that he does not have faith in the squad and could leave Chelsea.
Despite scoring in the Champions League final, the German forward has largely failed to impress.
The 23-year-old signed for Chelsea in a transfer worth £71 million, with 14 goals in all competitions being his best scoring return for the club.
Will Bakayoko, Aubameyang and Havertz leave? Watch this space.
