Chelsea were the big spenders in the Premier League and six new players have come in and made a difference in the first team. The Blues will not make the same amount of signings in the winter.

The Blues are keen on Declan Rice and could look to make a move for the West Ham midfielder. However, the Hammers are expected to want a very high price for their star man, with £80million being a potential price.

Kepa Arrizabalaga lost his place as the number one goalkeeper at the club and his long-term future is away from Stamford Bridge. It could be hard for the Blues to outright sell the Spaniard. But if they can find a suitable buyer then it’s likely the Blues will sell the player.

Marcos Alonso has moved down the pecking order after the arrival of Ben Chilwell. Alonso has a contract until 2023, and this January could be the time to cash in on him to raise some funds.

Antonio Rudiger would be heading out of the door in the summer. If the Blues want to sell a defender, then the 27-year-old could be the option, with his current deal running out in the summer of 2022.

Jorginho was another one who looked like he could be on his way out. The 28-year-old’s contract expires in 2023.

Olivier Giroud was key to Chelsea getting a Champions League spot, but once again he has found himself without much of a chance of playing. With only six months or so left on his deal, the Blues wouldn’t get too much for his transfer, but it could be a little bit into the coffers.
