Transfer news

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has acknowledged that a number of players will leave Chelsea before the end of August.

Mateo Kovacic's arrival on loan from Real Madrid has seen them all fall further down the pecking order.

Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko is continuing to edge towards a move to AC Milan.

Everton have already expressed an interest in Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma, with the Toffees hoping to strike a loan deal for the Frenchman, who spent last season at Stoke City.

Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol has provided an update on all four players ahead of a hectic deadline day at Stamford Bridge.

"The likes of Tiemoue Bakayoko, his brother, who is his agent, is having talks with AC Milan".

Benjamin eventually requested a trade and landed in Buffalo in the middle of last season for draft picks. Charlotte NBC News anchor Nick Carboni posted Benjamin's ripping of Newton on Twitter.

As the news emerged, Chelsea fans on Twitter erupted with joy.

This year's truncated window has proved challenging for Premier League clubs as they rush to complete their incoming business before the start of the season.

"We could also see Danny Drinkwater leaving Chelsea, clubs like Everton, West Ham, Leicester City interested in taking him".

Speaking after the game, he insisted that he is not looking to leave his current club while mentioning Barca's attempts to sign him.

Bakayoko's initial presence in Chelsea sides during pre-season sort of felt like Sarri would use him well this season, but their pursuit of Kovacic has now made him surplus to requirements.

He added: "For tomorrow, I think Azpilicueta, but it's not the final decision".
