Transfers in and out, latest on contracts and friendly fixture dates

Chelsea will be desperate for this Premier League season to end after a disaster of a campaign in all competitions. 

The Blues have been in dire form and are set for a midtable finish in the top flight despite breaking spending records in January. 

Chelsea have had a season to forget

But after the clear failure of their spending, another huge expenditure is likely this summer alongside plenty of departures with changes expected at the club.

And one of those changes is the manager, with Frank Lampard’s tenure as interim boss coming to an end and Mauricio Pochettino set to join.

It will be vitally important for the Blues and Pochettino to get their 2023/24 pre-season right to make sure they don’t go through another campaign like this one.

Chelsea pre-season fixtures 

Chelsea will embark on a tour of the USA during pre-season. 

They will face National League champions Wrexham before taking on a trio of fellow Premier League teams and then coming up against Borussia Dortmund. 

  • July 19: Chelsea vs Wrexham – Kenan Stadium, North Carolina
  • July 22: Chelsea vs Brighton – Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia 7:00PM
  • July 26: Newcastle vs Chelsea – Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta 8:15PM

Chelsea transfers in 

Chelsea have already secured the signing of Christopher Nkunku from RB Leipzig and he will join up with the Blues squad this summer. 

And there could be many more names joining the club throughout the window as Todd Boehly is expected to bring out the chequebook once again. 

They will rival Arsenal for £100m-rated Declan Rice from West Ham while also competing with Liverpool for Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister. 

Imminent new boss Pochettino will also reportedly be targeting Mac Allister as well as Emiliano Martinez and Lautaro Martinez.

There have been links to Moises Caicedo while rumours circle around Neymar’s future at PSG and a possible move to the Premier League.

Chelsea transfers out 

Mason Mount may be on the move after rarely featuring during the tail end of the season through injury. 

Mount is also heading into the final year of his contract with Liverpool and Arsenal showing interest in the midfielder.

But Chelsea hope appointing Pochettino as manager would help convince England star Mount to stay, talkSPORT understands.

Defender Thiago Silva has also been linked with a transfer away from the Blues to head to his home country of Brazil to play for Fluminense. 

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s time at Stamford Bridge has not gone well and he is likely to leave, with former club Barcelona set to come back in for him. 

Kalidou Koulibaly and Conor Gallagher have both also been rumoured to be moving on from the club.

Chelsea contract talks latest

N’Golo Kante could be on his way out of Chelsea this summer with the midfielder yet to sign a new deal.

The Frenchman’s contract runs out this summer and as time ticks on, he has still not decided where his future lies.

He is the only player who is out of contract in 2023, however, many key players will only have one year remaining on their deals. 

Mount, Silva, Mateo Kovacic and Christian Pulisic are expected to be in talks over a new contract with some question marks over their future. 

Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Cesar Azpilicueta and Aubameyang all also only have one year left.
