Chelsea wants to spend big during this upcoming summer transfer window, but the club will not be able to spend anything without raising funds this summer first. The club is in danger of breaching financial fair play rules, and the club needs to raise at least $126 million by the end of June. Chelsea has signed players for high transfer fees, like Moises Caicedo, Enzo Fernandez, and Cole Palmer, but selling them would not gain as much profit as the club hopes for. Chelsea could upset many fans with their ideas on what player they should sell, as they are considering selling two homegrown talents for a total profit.

Chelsea has reportedly been open to selling Conor Gallagher in the previous transfer windows, but they have kept him, and he has become a reliable player. What many were surprised by was the other player the club is considering selling as well. The Sunday Times reports that Chelsea are planning to sell Reece James and Conor Gallagher this summer to avoid breaching the Premier League's profitability and sustainability rules.

Conor Gallagher has played 27 matches for Chelsea in the Premier League this season and has started in all of those games. Gallagher has become the captain of the young Chelsea team in the last couple of games. Reece James also wore the armband when he was playing consistently for the Chelsea side. James has been injury-prone for a while, and this season is no different. James has only played eight matches in the Premier League this season. James is expected to be back from injury in April. His last match for Chelsea was against Everton in December.
