Thomas Tuchel is open to selling academy products Faustino Anjorin and Armando Broja in the summer in order to bankroll moves somewhere else.
The German tactician has been told he’ll be backed this summer but the Blues are likely to be dependent on sales in order for him to complete his business.
Chelsea smashed their transfer record to land Romelu Lukaku for £97m last year but not before the club raised £100m+ through the sales of Fikayo Tomori, Kurt Zouma and Tammy Abraham.
Roman Abramovich tried to step back from his club earlier this week but he remains the chairman and though he has pumped around £1.5bn into the club, the owner now wants Chelsea to be more self-sufficient.
The Evening Standard, therefore, report the London giants will look to raise transfer funds in the window by cashing in on the aforementioned pair.
Armando has spent the campaign on loan at Southampton and the Saints are just one PL club that would love to sign the Albania international.
Faustino joined Huddersfield on loan last month after a spell with Lokomotiv Moscow and he is surplus to requirements in West London.
Nevertheless, there is interest in his services and selling the England U20 international and Armando could raise as much as £50 million for the Blues.
