Giroud leaving, Guehi to follow soon: Latest Chelsea transfer round-up with probability ratings
12

Chelsea have already sold two players who spent the end of the last season out on loan: Fikayo Tomori has permanently joined AC Milan while Victor Moses is staying at Spartak Moscow.

In the coming days, other players are expected to follow suit but as for arrivals, we'll have to wait. Chelsea are likely to play big this summer, and such transfers take time to happen.

INs

The biggest saga of the summer continues, and there's no sign the rumours will die down.

The latest: BBC's Simon Stone claimed that Chelsea would be 'wasting their time' since Dortmund have no intention to sell. Before that, it was reported that the Blues were preparing a £150m bid.

Probability: 5/10

West Ham are determined to keep the England star at the club, but Chelsea are reportedly planning to test their patience with the first bid.

A £50-55m offer would surely be rejected, though, but it might put pressure on West Ham as Rice has already declined their contract proposal.

Probability: 4/10

Petr Cech is reportedly driving Chelsea's interest in the brightest young star of his former club Rennes

Man United are understood to be the frontrunners, but the Blues have already successfully dealt with the French club over Edouard Mendy's transfer.

Probability: 3/10

One of the most unexpected transfer rumours of the summer came from Bild's Christian Falk. The reporter claimed that Chelsea had an ₤85m offer rebuffed for Juventus winger Federico Chiesa.

While the Italian winger has impressed for the club and country over the past 12 months and might be a player of Chelsea's level, the Blues aren't likely to spend so much money on a winger when Thomas Tuchel doesn't really need them.

Probability: 0.1/10

OUTs

The striker has all but officially left Chelsea for AC Milan. Giroud has reportedly had a medical and has already written a farewell letter to the Blues' fans. The announcement is imminent.

Probability: 9.9/10

The Athletic broke the news that the talented centre-back is set to join Crystal Palace for around ₤20m. Guehi was impressive on his 18-month loan at Swansea but is concerned he won't get a chance to play at his boyhood club.

Probability: 9/10

According to The Telegraph, Chelsea are prepared to sell the striker for ₤40m, but this price might be too much for the potential suitors.

Arsenal are the last side in the picture, with Aston Villa and West Ham linked to Abraham previously.

Probability: 7/10

The centre-back attracts plenty of interest from the Premier League clubs, but the most intriguing option is AS Roma. Jose Mourinho is reportedly trying to bring over the player he introduced to the Blues' first team in 2014.

Chelsea are rumoured to be ready to sell the Frenchman for a fee of around ₤30m.

Probability: 6/10
