With just over two weeks until the summer Chelsea news and transfers transfer window closes, the Blues and, in particular, Todd Boehly, are expected to be very active in terms of incomings and outgoings.
Signings are expected to progress on all fronts, with Wesley Fofana, Frenkie de Jong, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang all heavily linked with moves to Stamford Bridge.
In terms of potential exits, Marcos Alonso is still being linked with one.
His transfer to Barcelonais reportedly nearing completion as the Spanish giants work out their financial issues with La Liga.
Emerson Palmieri, another left-back, appeared to be on his way to West Ham, but the deal fell through in the last 24 hours or so.
Meanwhile, Hakim Ziyech is pushing for a late exit as AC Milan's interest dwindles.
In terms of Aubameyang and Casemiro, Chelsea now faces new competition from Manchester United.
As the big-name exodus from Stamford Bridge continues, Chelsea could end this transfer window without five of their attackers from last season.
After Romelu Lukaku moved on loan earlier this summer and Timo Werner re-joined RB Leipzig after a disappointing two years in London, Thomas Tuchel has made it clear that certain playersno longer want to be at the club.
Not only is Callum Hudson-Odoi looking to leave for his own good, but Hakim is also looking to restart his career elsewhere.
Chelsea make a BIG bid for Aubameyang... Should Barça accept the offer?!
Chelsea's pursuit of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is set to intensify, with a meeting scheduled to discuss a deal for Aubameyang.
According to football.london, Chelsea is confident that Barcelona will accept their £22 million offer for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
"This is totally separate from anything that is happening now, but I enjoyed a lot working with Auba while I was at Dortmund," Tuchel said. "Some players stay your players because you were very, very close, and Auba is one of those players.
The Blues are still trying to sign a striker before the deadline next month, and it appears that they have made a significant progress.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea will soon make their first bid to Barcelona for Aubameyang, who is a top target in the final weeks of the transfer window.
Thomas Tuchel adores Aubameyang, who was lethal up front for him at Borussia Dortmund.
To be fair, Aubameyang has been lethal pretty much everywhere he's played.
Barcelona manager Xavi is said to want to keep Aubameyang, but given the club's financial situation, if a good offer from Chelsea comes in, the striker may be sold.

Premier League referee Mike Dean has admitted that he made the incorrect call when Cristian Romero pulled Marc Cucurella's hair during Chelsea's 2-2 draw with Tottenham on Sunday, August 14, 2022.
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel was enraged at referee Anthony Taylor after the game because of some of the official's decisions.
He chose not to report the incident in which Romero yanked Cucurella's hair before the Spurs scored a late equalizer to ensure the teams split the spoils.
"As for the second goal by Harry Kane, I asked referee Anthony Taylor to wait while I looked at the incident involving Tottenham’s Cristian Romero and Chelsea’s Marc Cucurella," he wrote in a column.
"I could not award a free kick as VAR, but I could recommend to Taylor that he visit the referee review area to consider a possible red card.
"I’ve since studied the footage, spoken to other referees and, upon reflection, I should have asked Taylor to visit his pitch-side monitor to take a look for himself. The referee on the field always has the final say.
"It goes to show that no matter how experienced you are, and I’ve spent more than two decades as a Premier League official, you are always learning."
