Reports have claimed that Todd Boehly is ready to raise £200m this summer by selling five Chelsea players.

According to The Evening Standard, the homegrown stars Mason Mount, Levi Colwill, Conor Gallagher, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi could be sold in order to raise funds for any spending.

The Blues are in a position where they will need to part ways with a number of their players this summer in order to strengthen again.

Immediately, fingers have been pointed at those who have come through the club’s highly-praised academy as those who will be able to generate the most profit at this stage.

Mount has been particularly linked with an exit from the club as disparities remain over what both party wants from his next contract.

With Boehly reportedly not wanting players to enter the last years of their deals, it could be a farewell for the Englishman this summer.

Gallagher was the subject of big interest in the winter, with fees of around £45m being discussed to potentially see him move.

One player supporters would be extremely disappointed to see leave however would be Colwill, who has enjoyed a sensational loan spell with overachieving Brighton this season.

He has shown a lot of promise, which makes it understandable that he is reportedly looking to be a first team regular from as early as next season.

This provides doubt over whether he will want to remain at Stamford Bridge, given the embarrassment of riches that are currently in the position at the club.

However, it has already been claimed that prospective new manager Mauricio Pochettino is a fan of the youngster, and will look to integrate him from as early as next year.
