Chelsea are set to undergo significant changes this summer and a number of departures are likely to be on the cards, raising funds for the Blues’ own transfer activity.
The Daily Mirror states in it’s printed addition (31/05, page 57) that 25-year-old defender Tomas Kalas is set to be one of the names exiting Stamford Bridge, as newly-promoted Fulham want to bring their former loanee in on a permanent basis.
The Cottagers beat Aston Villa in the playoff final at Wembley last weekend to seal a return to the top-flight and are now eyeing additions to help them in the battle to avoid an immediate return to the second-tier next season.
Kalas, who has spent eight years with Chelsea but has only earned two senior league appearances for the Blues, is considered surplus to requirements by the Premier League giants but they will demand a £10m fee from their west London rivals.
Capable of playing in the heart of defence or on the right side, Kalas proved to be a key-part of Slavisla Jokanovic’s promotion-winning side as he made 35 league appearances for the club.
