Chelsea might have sold Eden Hazard to Real Madrid and Alvaro Morata to Atletico Madrid, but that might just be the last of exit you might see from the Blues this summer, apart from youngsters who might go out on loan.

Following the transfer ban, Chelsea have vowed to keep hold of the bulk of the squad as the club can’t sign any replacement this summer.

The likes of Michy Batshuayi, Kurt Zouma and Tiemoue Bakayoko are being linked with exits from the club, with a host of Premier League clubs targeting the trio.

Zouma spent last season on loan at Everton and the Toffees are now reportedly determined to sign him on a permanent basis.

Everton boss Marco Silva is willing to offer Chelsea up to £32m for the Frenchman after his exploits at Goodison Park last season.

It isn’t just Zouma who’s attracting Premier League interests as report claims Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has identified Bakayoko as a possible replacement for Paul Pogba who could leave Old Trafford for Real Madrid this summer.

Manchester United face competition from Arsenal, with Unai Emery said to be an admirer of the midfielder and considering handing him another chance in the Premier League.

These three players are targeted by other Premier League clubs, but they might play an important role for Frank Lampard’s side next season, and Chelsea aren’t keen to let any go.

Lampard will use the next few weeks in pre-season to make decisions on the players he’d keep and the ones who will go out on loan.

The Blues are currently in Dublin Ireland and will face Irish side Bohemians at Dalymount Park Dublin on Wednesday.
