Chelsea shot-stopper Nicolas Tie is reportedly set to move to Portugal this summer transfer market as Blues manager Frank Lampard rings the changes at the club.
The Blues have already confirmed Mario Pasalic’s departure to Serie A side, Atalanta, in a £13.5 million deal earlier this month while a couple of other exits are expected.
Atletico Madrid are ready to take up their £48.5m option on Alvaro Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko is drawing attention from Paris Saint-Germain and the west Londoners are looking to offload Michy Batshuayi.
Danny Drinkwater, Davide Zappacosta and Victor Moses are all considered surplus to requirements while Willian and Pedro are expected to leave after fulfilling their short-term deal obligations.
Jorginho and Emerson Palmieri are both on Juventus’ transfer radar while there has even been talk of N’Golo Kante signing for Real Madrid.
The futures of perennial loan players such as Danilo Pantic, Nathan and Kenedy are also up in the air, with Frank looking to trim his squad size and wage bill down.
And Nicolas could be the next player to depart, with reports from Portugal suggesting a switch to Vitoria Guimaraes is on the cards.
Record state a long-term contract offer is set to be tabled in the coming days, with Nicolas lined up as a replacement for second-choice keeper Miguel Silva who is set to join APOEL.
Meanwhile, O Jogo suggest a loan deal could take place but also indicate the Blues would be keen on a permanent move with a percentage of future sales coming their way.
