Chelsea’s Graham Potter reportedly doesn’t mind if either N’Golo Kante or Jorginho leave Stamford Bridge.

The Blues may find themselves in a tricky situation in the near future, with senior midfielders Kante and Jorginho both out of contract next summer.

Kante, who’s actually sidelined with a hamstring problem for the next four months, is starting to have a lot of injury problems.

The £290,000-a-week Frenchman has achieved so much in Chelsea colours since he joined six years ago, but there is real worry in the fanbase about his fitness.

Meanwhile, £50million star Jorginho has started four of the opening six games under the new manager.

Potter doesn’t mind if Kante or Jorginho leave

It’s been claimed that Potter is prepared to lose the aforementioned duo.

According to 90min, Chelsea’s head coach would “not be against” losing either Kante or Jorginho.

The report explains there are ongoing discussions about new contracts for both central midfielders, but the Blues are hesitant to agree to the kind of wages that they are demanding.

As Potter said earlier this month, Chelsea don’t have a like-for-like replacement for Kante in the squad, so it’s a tad surprising to hear reports suggesting he doesn’t mind the Frenchman and Jorginho moving on.

Kante, 31, and Jorginho, 30, are two players that should still have a lot to offer. You can understand the reluctance to spend big on contracts for both, though.

If the Blues feel like Kante can trust his body and get back to playing again, then you obviously want him to stick around in the squad.

Meanwhile, Jorginho is definitely still capable of being really effective in this side when they’re in possession.

Ultimately, supporters will have to try trust what Potter wants to do moving forward.
