Chelsea transfer news today: Zouma and Emerson exit confirmed?
Chelsea this season has conducted limited but effective transfers in terms of incomings, but even more so when it comes to outgoings. Alley Sports brings to you the latest details on Chelsea transfer news today, as the Blues look to strengthen their lineup at the same time balance out the purchases made by selling out or loaning out other personnel, which they have done very well to a great extent.
Chelsea transfer news today : Zouma Situation
Chelsea have been linked with Jules Kounde throughout the entire transfer window period but as the Blues transfer policy is based out incomings purchase costs being matched by the revenue gained from outgoings, they are bound to let go of at least one of the several center back options they have. Kurt Zouma in this case seems to be the one likely to head out.
Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia is reportedly looking to offload Zouma in order to generate funds for the Kounde deal. Tottenham is one team that has shown interest in the French defender, however, most notable individuals from the Chelsea camp including some players and club legend John Terry have shown their disapproval against a deal with a direct club rival.
Chelsea transfer news today : Emerson departure
Emerson has officially left Chelsea to spend a season long loan in Lyon and has been confirmed by both the clubs. The Italian full back had fallen out of favor with Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel last season and was struggling with game time and competition in the same spot at left wing back with Chilwell and Alonso. The 27 year old has made several key contributions to the Blues team in their Europa League as well as Champions League successes and made a total of 71 appearances.
He moves to Lyon following a contract extension with Chelsea until 2023 and will look to fight for his place in the Ligue 1 side and get regular first team football.
