Chelsea are reportedly ready to ‘listen to offers’ for Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech this summer, according to the Daily Star reporter Paul Brown.
The trio have fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge in recent months and have been linked with removals from the club as a result.
What’s the latest on Chelsea?
Werner, who is valued at £31.5million by Transfermarkt, started just 15 Premier League games last season and has reportedly been offered as a potential counterweight in a deal for Matthijs de Ligt.
And talkSPORT’s Alex Crook has previously told GiveMeSport he believes Chelsea “will be open to offers” for Pulisic.
The United States international is valued at £37.8m by Transfermarkt but has only been featured upfront 13 times in the top flight throughout 2021/22 as he continues to struggle for the consistency.
Meanwhile, Italian outlet Calciomercato have claimed AC Milan are eager to end Ziyech’s nightmare at Stamford Bridge.
It is claimed that the Rossoneri are ready to acquire the 29-year-old on loan with an obligation to make the move permanent for a fee of around €25-30m (£21.1-25.3m). ).
What did Brown say about Chelsea?
Brown told GiveMeSport: “I think there are already doubts about the future of around three or four forwards at Chelsea, and there have been for months, even before the new owners arrived.

“It is clear that they already have too many. If they were to sign the two they want, then that’s clearly a massive overload in certain areas of the pitch.
“It’s no surprise you see Pulisic, Werner and Ziyech also all offered in potential deals to land players; I think Chelsea would listen to offers for those three.
Who could Chelsea sign?
With Romelu Lukaku joining Inter Milan on loan, and Werner, Pulisic and Ziyech, valued at £25.2million by Transfermarkt, all linked with the exit door, attacking reinforcements will be needed in the west of London.
As a result, Chelsea have agreed personal terms with Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling ahead of a potential £50million move.

There are likely to be plenty of changes at Chelsea this summer, and Tuchel will surely be hoping to unload some of the deadwood from his first team, making way for a handful of exciting new additions.
