Chelsea are preparing themselves for a mass exodus of players this summer with the revolving door at Stamford Bridge in full action already.
Mauricio Pochettino has already decided to let Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante, Kalidou Koulibaly, Kai Havertz, and Tiemoue Bakayoko leave this summer whilst Joao Felix and Denis Zakaria have not had their loan deals extended after a disappointing season last term.
Regarding players coming in this season at Chelsea, Christopher Nkunku has already arrived from RB Leipzig this summer and the French international is set to be joined by fellow forward Nicolas Jackson, who is set to sign for $40m.
