A list of Chelsea players who may leave the team in the winter window, Ziyech, Pulisic, and Mendy are listed
January 5 News Goal.com recently took stock of Chelsea players who may leave the team in the winter window, of which
, Ziyech, Pulisic, Mendy and other players are on the list.
Ziyech made history with Morocco in Qatar, placing himself in the foreground of Moroccan football history.
The wide player has been linked with AC Milan since his move from Ajax to west London in 2020, and his languid style suits the slower pace of Serie A.
However, Ziyech’s performances at the World Cup will also remind Porter of his quality and that he is ready to play for the team, who will ultimately make the decision.
Pulisic was rarely used by his head coach ahead of the World Cup, but his strong performance for the USA immediately made him a bigger figure in Porter’s mind.
Still, the ambitious Pulisic has hinted that he is prepared to seek a departure in order to secure regular game time if his minutes at the side are not guaranteed.
A few months ago, it would have been inconceivable that Mendy’s name would have been on this list.
Mendy was injured when Porter took charge, and he paid the price.
Porter has turned to Kepa in his absence and has been leaning towards the Spaniard in picking his starting XI, leaving Mendy in a substitute role.
The Africa Cup of Nations winner is unlikely to be content to play as a back-up goalkeeper and there are rumors that Milan could be the destination for a short-term deal as they search for a replacement for the injured Maignan.
Chuk Umeka’s surprise summer move to Chelsea has been warmly received as the Blues battle a host of top European clubs to sign the exciting talent from Aston Villa.
Under Tuchel or Porter, though, the England Under-19 star rarely gets his chances.
The 19-year-old is on the fringes of the first-team, so the club would consider a loan move and Premier League suitors will no doubt be lined up.
Cassady’s arrival in the summer proves that Chelsea are acquiring and developing a group of exciting young players, and the new boss Burleigh intends to build an under-25 talent team.
Kasadi has broken through the youth ranks since joining from Inter Milan and was included in Abu Dhabi’s mid-term training camp, with his first-team debut against Aston Villa highly anticipated.
The 19-year-old has been earmarked for a January loan move, presumably to speed up his development and get him ready for the first-team as soon as possible.
