Chelsea should let go of these two players this month, do you agree?

Chelsea have already made their first move of the January transfer window, bringing in Everton’s Ross Barkley.

The Englishman – who almost signed for the Blues on deadline day during the summer – completed his £15 million move to Stamford Bridge earlier this week, a price most would consider a bargain for the vastly talented midfielder.

And it is not expected Chelsea, nor Antonio Conte, will be done there. A host of players have been linked with moves to South West London in the coming weeks, including Juventus’ Alex Sandro and AS Monaco’s Thomas Lemar.

But who will make way for those who are destined to be playing at the Bridge? Chelsea News thinks it should be this duo, do you agree?

Willian

Willian can count himself unfortunate to be first on the Stamford Bridge culling list. Signed in controversial circumstances – some say to prevent Tottenham from securing the services of the then sought after Brazilian – the former Shakhtar Donetsk star has been an outstanding player for the Blues over the years.

In four seasons with the club, the Brazil international has scored 38 goals in just over 200 appearances. Now 29-years-old however and with his game time beginning to dwindle, it is time to cash in on the dangerous attacker, with plenty of clubs still interested in his services, including Manchester United (although they might regret that down the line).

Gary Cahill

All the talk is of out-of-favour star David Luiz leaving the club in the coming weeks after his rift with manager Antonio Conte turned sour. However, instead of the Brazilian centre-half – who had such a magnificent last season – Chelsea should instead think about letting go of Gary Cahill.

A loyal servant to the Blues, Cahill is now the Chelsea’s fifth choice centre-back behind Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, Cesar Azpilicueta and Luiz himself. And with a number of promising youngsters coming through in Ethan Ampadu and Trevoh Chalobah, he could be set to fall even further down the pecking order.
