The Premier League is one of the leagues with the most players under contract, but it doesn’t have room for everyone, and many have been dropped.
Mauricio Pochettino does not know Malang Sarr under contract with Chelsea…
With their dwindling operations in July, the Blues were able to recoup a decent amount. But it becomes almost ridiculous when compared to the investments the club have made since Todd Bohli’s arrival. 1 billion Euros have already been spent in building this team. So Chelsea still want to see many unwanted players leave. The London club have already parted ways with Mateo Kovacic, Kai Havertz, Mason Mount, Cesar Azpilicueta, Christian Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech and soon to officially sign Romelu Lukaku. Saudi Arabia also helped the Blues well by recovering N’Golo Kante, Edouard Mendy and Kalidou Koulibaly. But this is still not enough, the club would still like to send Frenchman Malang Sarr, whose existence even Mauricio Pochettino does not know, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Armando Broza.
Who wants Cedric Soares (Arsenal)?
Gunners also have their undesirables. Nuno Tavares, Cedric Soares and Nicolas Pepe have been dropped. The income from his loan to Marseille is what benefits the most from his departure. According to Fabrizio Romano, the Portuguese should be loaned to Nottingham Forest with a purchase option for around €14 million. The player trained at Benfica has already passed his medical examination, the formalities should not take long. For his part, Nicolas Pepe has tracks in Saudi Arabia, specifically Al-Fateh. As far as Soares is concerned, no concrete leads have been found so far.
Tottenham: still 7 players too many
Spurs would like to part with seven players. On Roma’s side, Hugo Lloris is the most advanced for starters. The parties are in talks, according to Gazzetta dello Sport. Another Frenchman is also worried: Tanguy Ndombele. Approached by Galatasaray and Fenerbahçe, the midfielder would love to stay at the London club. As for the remaining five players, Davinson will be interested in Sanchez Rennes and Eric Dier, Japhet Tanganga, Sergio Reguilon and Jade Spence do not really have an edge at the moment, but the club does not count on them.
