Chelsea shortlist two potential replacements for player who could leave in summer

Chelsea are looking set to head into another summer of busy transfer activity at the end of this season, with a number of players having question marks over their heads once again.

The club will need to sell players simply so they can help balance the financial books ahead of looking to sign more new arrivals in the next window. With FFP keeping a tightrope on clubs these days, Chelsea will naturally need to try and sell a few players before the end of June.

One player with a question mark over his head is winger Raheem Sterling. He is on the largest amount of wages at the club and pushing 30 now, meaning that it is quite obvious that there will be discussions about his future ahead of the next window opening.

Journalist Simon Phillips reports on his Substack site today that Chelsea will be open to offers for Sterling in the summer, and he has named two potential replacements on the shortlist.

Phillips says Chelsea like Michael Olise from Crystal Palace, and Nico Williams of Athletic Bilbao.
