This summer could be an interesting one for Chelsea as Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital enter their third year of ownership. 

Since the American’s purchased the club in 2022, the Blues have spent more than 1 billion on new signings, sparking suggestions that they could risk being in breach of the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules.

The regulations prohibit clubs from losing more than £105 million over the course of three seasons, and Leicester City, Everton and Nottingham Forest have all been charged with breaching the rules in the past year.

At present, the club have recorded losses in excess of £211 million over the past two seasons, and they must therefore look to recoup some of their spend.

With that in mind, Chelsea are reportedly prepared to sell three academy graduates this summer.

According to Football Insider, the West London club will listen to offers for Conor Gallagher, Armando Broja and Trevoh Chalobah.

The trio all graduated from the Blues’ youth academy over the past few years, and have all featured regularly for the club at senior level in the past 12 months.

Broja is currently on loan at Fulham

Gallagher, 24, made his debut at the start of last season and has been a regular ever since, making a total of 83 appearances for the club across all competitions.

The midfielder has captained the Blues on a number of occasions this term, and has also established himself as a regular in the England squad.

Chalobah, meanwhile, made his debut at the start of the 2021/22 campaign and has now played 69 times for Chelsea at senior level.

The central defender, who can also play in midfield or at right-back, missed much of the current campaign due to injury but has recently returned to action.

Albanian striker Broja, who is currently on loan at West London rivals Fulham, has played just 38 times for the Blues at senior level, scoring only three goals.

The report claims that all three players will be made available for sale this summer, as the London side look to raise funds.
