sports: Champions League: Tuchel puts 9 Chelsea players up for sale
Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, will put up to nine players for sale this summer, ahead of this first full season at Stamford Bridge.
They include Fikayo Tomori, Tammy Abraham, Jorginho, Antonio Rudiger, Ross Barkley, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Michy Batshuayi, Kepa Arrizabalaga and Emerson.
The Blues billionaire owner, Roman Abramovich, already spent over £200million on new players last summer, but Tuchel is expecting to be backed in his first transfer market as manager.
However, the former Paris Saint-Germain boss also needs to cut down his squad by offloading some of his fringe men to boost his transfer kitty.
Chelsea fell out of the Champions League place on Monday night, after West Ham edged Wolves 3-2 in a Premier League clash.
However, they are still in the competition, where they face FC Porto in the quarter-finals.
Tuchel will be looking to seal qualification for the Champions League either via the league or winning it, to also boost his budget for new players
