Chelsea is set to release seven players as part of Mauricio Pochettino’s ambition to boost the club’s standing as a real title contender.
This decision comes after a spate of defeats that have dropped Chelsea to 12th place and increased pressure on Pochettino. Despite the backing of the club’s owners, Pochettino intends to rebuild the team, which will need future changes to the roster.
Noni Madueke, Marc Cucurella, and Armando Broja, among others, could be offloaded to make place for fresh, higher-quality arrivals in the forthcoming transfer windows.
The priority is to sign a striker, with Victor Osimhen being the prime target. However, getting immediate agreements may prove difficult, potentially necessitating large expenditures to boost the team for a stronger second half of the season.
