Six Chelsea stars at risk of transfer departure as Todd Boehly reaffirms Graham Potter backing
Chelsea have already signed four players in the January transfer window after signing eight new players in Todd Boehly’s first summer as Blues co-owner Chelsea have signed 12 players since Todd Boehly and the Clearlake group sealed a £4 billion purchase at Stamford Bridge. The Blues’ total transfer outlay during that period has reached £300 million and is expected to grow further before the January transfer window shuts.
Graham Potter was named as Thomas Tuchel’s replacement in September, but things haven’t gone quite as planned for the former Brighton manager. Chelsea are currently tenth in the Premier League table after a 2-1 defeat to Fulham, having already been relegated following their performances in the Carabao Cup and FA Cup finals last season.

The Blues have been severely plagued by injuries this season, with Denis Zakaria the latest to be sidelined after suffering a thigh injury in the defeat to Fulham. The Swiss midfielder joins Raheem Sterling, Christian Pulisic, Wesley Fofana, Reece James, and Ben Chilwell in the treatment room, but Potter must address other concerns if Chelsea are to improve their record.
Spylax Media sources that the west London club have begun talks to sign PSV winger Noni Madueke in January, as they look to recruit a fifth player this month. Christopher Vivell is lobbying for the signing of the 20-year-old, who may cost the Blues a price. £40 million is a reasonable estimate.
According to the Telegraph, several key players at Chelsea are now facing unclear futures due to their poor form, with Todd Boehly ready to stick by Potter by moving underperforming players on during the transfer season. The Blues have no option or duty to buy new acquisition Joao Felix in his loan arrangement until the end of the season, but the club remains hopeful that they will be able to sign him permanently from Atletico Madrid if he performs well and the club wishes to. In the summer, player sales will be just as vital as new acquisitions, but Chelsea’s main problem will be finding new players.
and teams interested in the high-paid stars they are willing to sell or loan out. Given the club’s terrible results this season, Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz, and Pulisic all face unclear futures at Stamford Bridge.
Jorginho’s contract expires after the season, and interest in captain Cesar Azpilicueta could be examined, despite the Spaniard signing a new contract at the start of the 2022/23 season. According to the source, Chelsea may cut their losses on defender Kalidou Koulibaly if an offer from Italy arises, while the club is unlikely to stand in the way of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang if he decides to return to Spain or France. Potter’s job as Blues manager is regarded to be secure even if the club fails to finish in the top four. Boehly is prepared to continue ringing the changes at Stamford Bridge by selling out-of-form players to raise funds for replacements if necessary.
