Haaland Deal: Chelsea ready to sell 2 top stars to raise £90m

Chelsea FC wants to raise up to £90m from the double-sale of Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi. 

Haaland Deal: Chelsea ready to sell 2 top stars to raise £90m

According to former England international, Glen Johnson, Chelsea are going to seek to move on Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi this summer. The duo would reportedly fetch the Blues at least £90m in transfer kitty. The windfall would also bolster Chelsea's spending power as they look to put in a bid for their number 1 summer target, Erling Haaland. 

The Blues search for a number 9 for the new season is well-stated. Olivier Giroud has moved on to AC Milan and Thomas Tuchel doesn't trust Tammy Abraham to lead the Chelsea attack. In a straight swap, Chelsea would be open to selling the lanky striker for up to £50m to fund the arrival of another frontman.

Another player who Tuchel has regarded as expendable is winger/wing-back, Callum Hudson-Odoi. The 20-year-old played a starring role under the German tactician in the early stages of Tuchel's reign but quickly fell out of favour. He is now thought to be available for a price of £40m. 

According to Glen Johnson, Chelsea would have no problems allowing both England Internationals to leave if the right offers come in. Their transfer fees would also form a sizeable chunk of the £150m needed to sign Norwegian striker,  Erling Haaland. Despite the 20-year-old Borussia Dortmund player saying earlier this week that he hopes no one comes up with £150m to sign him; Chelsea are expected to test Dortmund's resolve with a hefty bid this summer. 

However, Borrusia Dortmund seems to be ready for the imminent loss of Haaland after they completed the signing of PSV forward, Donyell Malen. It is expected that Haaland would leave the Signal Iduna Park sooner or later due to the clause in his contract that allows him to leave for as low as £75m next summer. Thus, Dortmund would either sell this season or expect a bidding war on their hands in July 2022.
