7 Former Chelsea Players Who Could Make A Return To The Club

Chelsea football club is one of the biggest clubs in the English Premier League and Europe as a whole. That big club status has made them harbor some great talents in the past which contributes to the progress of the club.

However, as well all know that the game is a game of profit and for that to happen, clubs will need to sell and buy players and that area of the game has never excluded Chelsea.

However, the west London club will continue to be one that many would still want to represent, and that includes players who had played there before.

Going forward, I want to bring to the knowledge of my readers 7 former Chelsea players who could make a return to the club.

The England international was on the book of Chelsea for over 10 years, representing the club at various youth levels.

The 18-year-old was Chelsea academy player of the year for the 2020/2021 season but after viewing his options at Stamford Bridge, he decided to join Southampton during the last summer transfer window.

According to reports, Chelsea has a buy-back clause inserted in his deal, and that suggests the club still has faith in him and he could make a return in the nearest future.

The Brazilan international joined Chelsea in the summer of 2012 but left the club in 2017.

However, Oscar has always made his desire known that he is open to a return, and anything is possible when it comes to player's transfer.

The England international continues to be linked with a return to Chelsea, a club he joined when he was 7 years old.

Declan Rice is an important player to West Ham United but the Hammers could be forced into selling their star man when the right price comes in.

(5) Willian

The Brazilian international joined Chelsea in 2013 and after 7 years of relentless service, he left the club to join Arsenal.

However, his move to the Emirate Stadium didn't go as planned, and in the summer of 2021, he joined the Brazilian club side, Corinthians.

Meanwhile, The 33-year-old still holds Chelsea dearly and he could make a return if there is a call for his service.

However, Lamptey decided to join Brighton and Hove Albion on the deadline day of the 2020 winter transfer window, and he has made good use of that move by playing regularly until an injury set in. He is all set to create a name for himself and should he continue to impress with the Seagulls, Chelsea may come knocking for his signature.

(7) Eden Hazard

The Belgian international is a fan favorite during his spell in England and he remains an icon of the club.

However, Eden Hazard secured his dream move to Real Madrid in the summer of 2019 and the transfer hasn't turned out as planned for him or the Spanish club.

The 30-year-old was linked with a return to Chelsea during the last summer transfer window, and we could end up seeing him represent the club again.

Conclusively, Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku are the evidence of what could happen if Chelsea wants to have their former players back.
