According to Daily Express, Chelsea are expected to conclude six transfers this week, with three players joining the club and another three leaving the club.

The report claims a deal for Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell is expected to be completed this week. The England international is Chelsea’s top defensive target as Frank Lampard looks to bolster a leaky rearguard that had the worst record in the top half of the Premier League last season.

Brazilian centre-back Thiago Silva has left Paris Saint-Germain following the expiration of his contract and he is expected to join Chelsea this week.

Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz is believed to be close to completing his Chelsea transfer with Daily Express claiming it could happen this week after Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia made progress in negotiations with Bayer Leverkusen.

Chelsea left-back Emerson Palmieri is expected to leave Chelsea this week and link up with former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte at Inter Milan for a reported fee of £27m.

Emerson Palmieri won’t be the only Blues ace heading to Serie A with Tiemoue Bakayoko expected to finalise a return to AC Milan this week.

Daily Express also claim Fikayo Tomori could leave Chelsea for French club Rennes this week after falling down the pecking order at Chelsea. With Thiago Silva joining Chelsea, Tomori might struggle to get chances next season.
