Meanwhile Kai Havertz deal draws closer
N’Golo Kante and Emerson Palmieri are being linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge to join Antonio Conte at Inter, who signed both while in charge of Chelsea between 2016 and 2018.
Michy Batshuayi could also be on the move – the Belgian has just one year remaining on his contract at Stamford Bridge, meaning that the Blues are likely to be looking to sell him this summer. Leeds United and Crystal Palace are said to be interested in the striker, with Chelsea looking for a fee of around £25 million.
Chelsea will hold contract talks with midfielder Conor Gallagher amid interest from Newcastle and Crystal Palace. The 22-year-old spent last season on loan at Swansea.
As for coming into the Bridge, there is increasing speculation surrounding Brighton captain Lewis Dunk, who has been linked with a move. One deal that is almost certain to go through is for Bayer Leverkusen playmaker Kai Havertz, who is expected to sign a five-year deal within the coming week.
