Chelsea have had a mixed fortune since appointing Maurizio Sarri as their coach at the beginning of the season. They have 47 points from 22 matches in the Premier League and are at the 4th position in the league table. However, Manchester United have won 5 consecutive league matches and now trail Chelsea only by 6 points.

Moreover, there are Arsenal, who have 41 points from 22 matches and are at the 5th position. Therefore, Chelsea might not find it easy to finish inside the top 4. So they might think of making some changed in their squad for the next season. They have already sold veteran midfielder Cesc Fabregas to Monaco.

Here, we would now take a look at the 3 more players they should sell in the near future.

#3 Gary Cahill

Gary Cahill

Cahill is a 33-year-old central defender and former England international, who has been playing for Chelsea since 2012, and has been on top of every chelsea transfer news gossip for quite some time now. He has already appeared in 289 matches for Chelsea and scored 25 goals. However, he has found it extremely difficult to make it to the playing XI this season and as a result, played in only 7 matches this season.

Chelsea already have Antonio Rudiger and David Luiz as regular center-backs and right-back Cezar Azpilicueta can also play as a central defender. On the bench is Andreas Christensen, who is more than just reliable.

Therefore, the ageing Cahill has fallen out of favor with the team management and might find it very difficult to make a come back to the team.

Chelsea might actually think of making some new purchases in the next season as the rumors around EPL transfer news have suggested, which might also include a defender or two. Therefore, they might also want to lighten their squad by selling a few players. It would not come as a surprise if Cahill is one of them, as he is nearing the end of his career at the top level.
