Chelsea will consider selling Andreas Christensen in order to finance their bid for key transfer target Declan Rice, according to reports in England.
The defender is one of four players the Blues are looking to offload, along with Jorginho, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Danny Drinkwater. It isn’t surprising that manager Frank Lampard is willing to see a centre-half leave, considering he now has six players who can play in that position, following the arrivals of Malang Sarr and Thiago Silva.
However, it was believed that both Sarr and Fikayo Tomori would be leaving on loan, with the latter having been heavily linked with Everton in recent days. Christensen’s exit would suggest one of those two may now be staying put.
West Ham are reportedly demanding as much as £75m for Rice so funds will need to be found from somewhere, and it looks as though the Blues are waiting for offers for their unwanted players.
