Four senior players set to leave Chelsea this summer

As many as four senior players are set to leave Chelsea this summer.

Chelsea made no signings in the Janaury window despite their transfer ban being lifted and, surprisingly, held onto veteran players such as Olivier Giroud and Pedro.

However, a clear out looks likely in the summer to make way for Ajax midfielder Hakim Ziyech, with Giroud, Pedro, Willian and Michy Batshuayi likely to depart Stamford Bridge, says the Mirror.

Pedro and Giroud have only made 11 league appearances between them this season and are highly likely to depart when their contracts expire at the end of the campaign.

Batshuayi is contracted until 2021 but is seen as surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge having not made a single Premier League start this season.
