Chelsea ‘eyeing move’ for Jude Bellingham but Abraham and Bakayoko set to leave

Chelsea have already enjoyed a productive transfer window but outgoings could be their priority heading into the final weeks.

Romelu Lukaku’s big money signing has made the Blues real title contenders this season, with the striker joining from Inter Milan for £98million.

After paying such a large fee, the club will now be looking to shift some players off their books, with Tammy Abraham’s departure all but confirmed, while others are being linked with an exit too.

Despite this, the club have not ruled out further signings, and have reportedly named Jude Bellingham as a potential new addition, which helps to form the focus of Daily Star Sport’s Chelsea transfer round-up…

Bellingham interest

Chelsea are reportedly hoping to add Jude Bellingham to their ranks before the end of the transfer window.

The 18-year-old enjoyed an impressive debut season for Borussia Dortmund, after joining the club from Birmingham City last summer.

Eurosport claim Roman Abramovich is keeping tabs on the youngster as an alternative to Declan Rice.

Bellingham’s strong performances last season earned him a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s Euro 2020 squad.

Abraham departure nears

Tammy Abraham’s Chelsea exit is getting closer, after the 23-year-old flew out to Rome to complete his move.

The striker was key part of Frank Lampard’s plans at Stamford Bridge, but since Thomas Tuchel took over game time has been limited.

Arsenal were linked with Abraham, who scored 15 league goals during the 2019/20, but a phone call with Jose Mourinho convinced him to head to Rome for a fee of £34million.

His move to the Stadio Olimpico will see him earn a reported £98,000 per week.

Meanwhile, Hakim Ziyech is also being linked with a move to Serie A, with AC Milan monitoring his situation.

Bakayoko heading for the exit door

Tiemoue Bakayoko is another Chelsea player who is set to leave the club this summer, as they look to balance the books after the big money signing of Romelu Lukaku.

The midfielder is generating interest from Rennes and Lyon, with AC Milan and Napoli also linked earlier this summer.

It is unknown if he will leave the club on loan or permanently, but with only 29 Premier League appearances for Chelsea since 2017, it’s more likely to be the latter.

The 26-year-old has failed to nail a first team spot since joining from Monaco, and has been shipped out on three separate loan spells.
