Chelsea were not busy during the January transfer window but plans were earlier in place to sign at least five world-class players during the summer transfer window until latest announcement.
The Blues suffered a huge blow when the UK Governmemt sanctioned their owner Roman Abramovich hence affecting their summer transfer plans where they are not allowed to sign or sell any player.
Chelsea had lineup several reinforcements in the defence, midfield and attack to counter the stars who are set to exit Stamford Bridge this summer.
Chelsea stars who will leave due to expiration of their current deal include Antonio Rudiger, Cezar Azipilicueta, Andreas Christensen, Chris Musonda and Saul Niguez whose loan deal is expiring this summer.The Blues had shortlisted five stars to consider this summer transfer window including Lille Forward Jonathan David, Monaco Midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni, Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele, Sevilla defender Jules Kounde and Westham United central midfielder Declan Rice according to Football London Reports.
Man United are reportedly intrested in Declan Rice, Tchoueni & Kounde as they could poach them this summer while Arsenal have been linked with Jonathan David and Ousmane Dembele hence could take advantage of Chelsea sanctions and sign them.
