Talent drain at Chelsea

Lewis Bate, Tino Livramento and Dynel Simeu are some of the blues youth players who will pack this transfer market in search of opportunities.


Mason Mount, Reece James, Tammy Abraham, Callum Hudson-Odoi ... Chelsea's quarry has nurtured the first team in recent years, especially after the sanction that prevented the blues from signing and thanks to the hand of Frank Lampard from the bench, a great protector of young talent. Despite the emergence of the quarry in recent times, the reality is that the Stamford Bridge team has an excess of production that is going to trigger a talent drain this summer. As the English media have pointed out, this escape is already happening: several of the best homegrown players have decided to leave Chelsea to find accommodation in another club with a better chance of reaching the first team.

Among those who are going to leave Chelsea some names stand out. Lewis Bate and Tino Livramento were called up at some point by Thomas Tuchel last season, but believe that at Leeds and Brighton, respectively, they will have more chances to settle in the Premier League. Bate's case will be closed for just over 1.5 million euros, in addition to variables depending on the games he plays at the highest level with those of Marcelo Bielsa. At Chelsea, players like Kanté, Jorginho, Kovacic, Mount or Gilmour cut him off. For their part, Brighton wants to win Livramento, which was awarded as the best footballer in the academy last season. The 18-year-old right-back is ahead of Azpilicueta, Reece James or Hudson-Odoi himself, sometimes used as a winger in the three-center system.In addition, Southampton has agreed to transfer Dynel Simeu for three seasons in exchange for almost 2 million euros, with Chelsea keeping a percentage of future sales, as reported by the Goal news portal. Simeu decided to leave the Stamford Bridge team and will be part of Hassenhüttl's plans this season. Lastly, Myles Peart-Harris is expected to sign for Brentford in the coming days, also in London.
