Chelsea chief Marina Granovskaia has reportedly already opened talks to make the club’s first transfer deal this summer.
It was recently reported that Chelsea will be open to letting go of Tammy Abraham this summer if they receive an offer of somewhere in the region of £40million. He has featured on just six occasions since Thomas Tuchel took over at Stamford Bridge, but he remains the club’s leading scorer this season with 12 goals.
However, according to The Athletic, Abraham, does not look like being the only Chelsea striker heading for the exit door this summer, with youngster Ike Ugbo appearing set to leave the club.
The 22-year-old, who has been on the Blues’ books since 2007, is the subject of interest from Premier League newcomers Watford. The Vicarage Road outfit are already locked in discussions with the Blues over a £5million deal to sign Ugbo.
It is reported that initial talks began earlier this month and further talks are set to take place at a later date. Ugbo is set to return to the UK this week from Belgian outfit Cercle Brugge loan spell, where he scored 16 goals in 32 appearances.
