According to a report, there are three rather high profile attacking stars that Chelsea are willing to allow to leave the club this summer. First of all, there are numerous stories in doing the rounds in national media about Romelu Lukaku prospectively departing Fulham Road. Presently, it appears a loan between Inter Milan – his former side in Italy – and the Blues is the most realistic eventuality in the striker’s melodrama. So he takes the number up to four.

Following the initial offering of the Belgium international by the West London team, Guardian writer Jacob Steinberg claims Thomas Tuchel would be willing to let three others go. The trio who CFC would listen to offers for are duly named as Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech. To be honest, I am sure that this revelation won’t come as a massive surprise to the Chels’ faithful. While many fans seem to back Pulisic whilst desiring his continued presence at Stamford Bridge, his finishing was questioned by Tuchel personally in public of late. This follows the United States national missing somewhat simple opportunities to score for the Blues.

I rate the former Borussia Dortmund asset, and his goal record per minute is actually impressive. Though it is Pulisic who will decide his own fate – and that is most probably to be more time on the pitch. Whether that is elsewhere or at the Bridge, remains to be seen. Liverpool are viable bidders, assert The Athletic.

Meanwhile, Werner’s performances and focus often couple into a riddle for Tuchel and his staff to decipher and resolve. The problem with offloading the ex-RB Leipzig forward, or the American, is that both have the capacity to be so beneficial in the EPL, on paper. Selling is a controversial step: certain achievements are in the bank, as well as remaining promise. Yet in a year, we could be involved in discourse over why the pair, or either individual respectively, were not released. However, I feel that Werner is the more feasible to ultimately be retained with regard to this duo.

The 26-year-old doesn’t seem to be connected with many, if any, potential moves over the offseason. There is certainly nothing circulating from top sources. Therefore Werner could still be in London come August; it would be equally unsurprising if a deal is made for him to depart, on the other hand. Following the transfer market opening June 10, revelations shall emerge.

Now, let’s briefly talk about Ziyech, who is arguably the most naturally talented of the three CFC men in question. His wand of a left-foot hasn’t been witnessed casting enough magic spells over the best domestic division on the planet. Though, “The wizard” does has every attribute necessary to be an outstanding EPL wingman.

I always assumed Ziyech’s position might be altered, as he could do damage with vision and technique as a No.10. Yet that role is not an aspect of Tuchel’s most favoured system. Manchester United are on the surely long list of admirers for the Morocco representative. I suggest he is given more time with the Blues, if possible.
