Chelsea seeking buyers for six senior players

Chelsea are actively seeking buyers for six senior players ahead of the summer market.

The Daily Express says Marcos Alonso, Michy Batshuayi, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Kenedy and Danny Drinkwater are among the players who are likely to be shipped out.

Emerson Palmieri is the sixth man on the list and Inter Milan have opened talks with Chelsea about signing the Italy international.

Chelsea have made an explosive start to the summer transfer window by adding Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner to their ranks.

An initial €40million (£36m) deal was agreed with Ajax for Ziyech in February while Werner's arrival from RB Leipzig was confirmed after triggering his release clause last month.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is willing to back Frank Lampard after an encouraging maiden campaign in the Stamford Bridge dugout but the club want to clear deadwood to make room for Kai Havertz, who is valued at £90m by Bayer Leverkusen.
