Chelsea have one of the biggest squads in Europe and that can be good for competition among players but there will also be players unhappy with the amount of game time they get.
With that said, there are some players that the Chelsea board have been reluctant to sell because of their past performances and future expectations. Some are Chelsea academy graduates while some were bought from other clubs.
Tuchel has improved many Chelsea players. Some have been able to rediscover their best form completely while some are gradually getting back to their best.
Chelsea have many fringe players that could be sold soon, but below are three players I think Chelsea should sell if they fail to perform this season.
Ruben Loftus Cheek: Ruben Loftus-Cheek has had some good and bad experiences as a Chelsea first-team player.
He made his debut for Chelsea in 2015 and since then he has been in and out of the squad due to injury. His last injury in 2019 cost him a place in the Chelsea team last season.
He is back at Chelsea this season after one season away on loan at Fulham and will be looking to win back his place under Thomas Tuchel. If he fails to make a good impact this year, he should be sold next summer.
Hudson-Odoi: His story is similar to that of Loftus-Cheek. The young English talent was given a lucrative contract at Chelsea because of how much the club believed in his talent. However, he has lost his place in the Chelsea team and seems to be struggling under Thomas Tuchel.
He almost moved to Dortmund on loan this season and Chelsea should cash in on him if he doesn’t perform at his best this season.
Timo Werner: Signed last year from Leipzig, the German has not fulfilled the role he was supposed to fill at Chelsea and that is why Chelsea bought Lukaku this summer. Werner is a striker and he clearly cannot bench Lukaku in the Chelsea squad, so Chelsea should sell him next Summer.
