Thomas Tuchel, the manager of Chelsea, has completed a deal to acquire Jules Kounde and is prepared to transfer four Chelsea players.
The players include Timo Werner, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Hakim Ziyech, and Michy Batshuayi, according to The Telegraph.
However, given Chelsea's difficulty in securing offers for them, Tuchel might be stuck with these undesired players.
Kounde, a France international, has agreed to join Chelsea from Sevilla after negotiations with both parties ended in an agreement.
The Blues have already signed Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly this summer.
The Telegraph reports that Tuchel is prepared to sanction the departures of a number of first-team regulars.
Chelsea are currently in the United States of America for their pre-season tour and Tuchel has already sent four players home, with Armando Broja and Levi Colwill likely to leave before the transfer deadline.
