SAD: These TWELVE Chelsea players could potentially leave at the end of the season and yes Ben Chiwell makes the list as Manchester City keeps pressing harder.
The Athletic reports Ben Chilwell could lead a mass clearout from Stamford Bridge.
They say exit by Chilwell “can not be ruled out” as Manchester City have shown “genuine” interest ahead of the summer transfer window.
But the Blues may have to offload a number of other players and could raise as much as £264m.
The West Londoners have spent a whopping £600MILLION since new owner Todd Boehly took over from Roman Abramovich eight months ago and are looking to make even more additions.
Mason Mount could follow Chilwell as he has yet to agree on a new deal, while his current contract runs out next year.
Manchester United, Liverpool and City are all keen on the England man.
The same goes for Mateo Kovacic, whereas Christian Pulisic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have fallen out of favour.
Cesar Azpilicueta has reached the advanced age of 33 years old and almost left for Barcelona in the summer.
Conor Gallagher almost left in January and the same goes for Hakim Ziyech, who missed out on a loan move to Paris Saint-Germain after a bureaucracy gaffe.
Armando Broja had been struggling for opportunities before his injury.
Kai Havertz has been a focal point for Chelsea but has only managed six goals in 25 Premier League appearances this season and fans are growing increasingly frustrated.
And Raheem Sterling has struggled to impress since his arrival last summer, although his agent has said he wants to stay.
It is unlikely that all 12 of those players will leave in the summer, but space might need to open up after a busy January transfer window.
