Marina Granovskaia has settled on Chelsea’s next three transfer deals after the trio complete departures.

Having led the Blues to their second Champions League apex in their history, head coach Thomas Tuchel has well and truly put the west London club back on the map, with them now proficient of attracting big-name stars to reinforce their armory.

For Tuchel, this summer’s transfer window, which formally opened for business last week, grants him with his first significant opportunity to put his own stamp of authority on the squad that he acquired from his forerunner, Frank Lampard, upon his arrival in January.

Although the January window was still open at the time of his arrival, Tuchel did not see a purpose to supplement to the squad mid-season. As well as that, Chelsea had spent over £200million last summer, meaning another big splurge was always doubtful.

But with Tuchel having proved his managerial ranks in recent months, he is set to be furnished with a transfer war chest this summer to add the players he wants to his squad.

However, with the German keen on adding big-name players to his ranks, Chelsea will have to cut their cloth to not only trim the size of the squad but bring in reserves to fund new arrivals.


Already, transfer guru Marina Granovskaia has wasted little time on that score, with three players having already sealed departures from Stamford Bridge on permanent deals.

The first to depart the club was youngster Pierre Ekwah Elimby, who finished a move to West Ham United last week for around £1.5million.

The Blues’ second summer departure came in the shape of forgotten midfielder Danilo Pantic, who sealed a permanent switch to Partizan Belgrade, the club Chelsea signed him from back in 2015, on Wednesday. He has returned to his homeland without making a single appearance for the Blues.

The third permanent departure, and the biggest to date, is that of Fikayo Tomori. His return to AC Milan was established yesterday following a prosperous loan spell with the club during the 2020/21 campaign. It is noted that he has returned to the Italian giants for an initial fee of £25million.

With the Blues continuing to trim the size of the squad and offloading those not involved in Tuchel’s programs, Granovskaia will now be hoping to focus more heavily on bringing players into the club.

It is believed that Chelsea plans to add three new faces, as a minimum, to the squad this summer, with a right-sided defender, a central midfielder, and a striker on their radar.

Inter Milan player Achraf Hakimi and Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland are guessed to be Tuchel’s top targets to strengthen the right wing-back and striker roles, with the club understood to have reignited their interest in West Ham United ace Declan Rice to reinforce the center of midfield.

Although all three players will cost Chelsea a small fortune, they should have no problem in attracting them because of their European champions status.

Financially, though, it could confirm difficult, with all three players going to command huge fees and big wages, especially in Haaland’s case.

Nevertheless, Chelsea have a strategy in place and believes three new additions in those aforementioned positions can be what turns them into title contenders next term.
