Five Chelsea players who could leave in January


Chelsea will make a concerted effort to avoid buying too many players during the January transfer window in order to avoid the same problems that Graham Potter experienced.

Potter was in charge when the Blues signed six first-team players during the January transfer window, resulting in an unhealthy bloating of the first-team squad, albeit injury difficulties meant he was never graced with a fully fit roster.

According to The Telegraph, Chelsea are aiming to sign two or three players in January, but they also want to ensure that the same amount of players leave the club.

As a result, they hope that Pochettino will not be overburdened with an unhealthily huge squad.


According to the Telegraph, five players could leave Chelsea this winter, with Conor Gallagher bringing the total to six, but Pochettino wants to keep the England international and an exit is therefore unlikely.

Trevoh Chalobah is the most likely to depart Stamford Bridge, and the defender is expected to have played his final game for the Blues as Bayern Munich continues to pursue a mid-season transfer.

Furthermore, Ian Maatsen is said to be on the market after turning down a Transfer Deadline Day transfer to Burnley during the summer. His contract expires in 2025, and Chelsea intend to sell him to help bankroll a move for Napoli's Victor Osimhen.

Malang Sarr is also on the market and has dropped out of the first-team picture, while Armando Broja and Noni Madueke "could consider their immediate futures" as they continue to play second fiddle.

On the right wing, Madueke has fallen behind Raheem Sterling and Cole Palmer in the pecking order, while Nicolas Jackson appears to be Pochettino's first-choice striker. Broja's injury issues haven't helped his cause, but with a regular run of fitness, the Albanian might push to become the preferred option.
