EPL: Two senior Chelsea players to leave Stamford Bridge in January

Posted by on December 17, 2021 0

Two senior Chelsea players, Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso have asked their agents to engineer a January move away from Stamford Bridge, the Sun reports.

Azpilicueta, who is Chelsea captain, has lost his place in Thomas Tuchel’s side this season.

He has started just 10 out of the opening 17 matches of the Premier League season so far this season.

At right wing-back, it is Reece James who is the preferred option, while at centre-back Azpilicueta has had to fight for minutes up against Thiago Silva and Antonio Rudiger. Trevoh Chalobah, and Andreas Christensen.

His contract with Chelsea will expire in June 2022, but he is eager to move before then to get settled in a new club ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar next winter.

Alonso, meanwhile, was the first-choice left wing-back at the start of the season but lost his place due to the remarkable form of Ben Chilwell.

The left-back, who still has 18 months remaining on his deal, has started the last four Premier League games following the knee injury suffered by Chilwell.

But it appears both Alonso and Azpilicueta are still not happy with their game time under Tuchel.

Speaking on The Transfer Window Podcast, Ian McGarry, a respected football expert, claimed that both players are keen on leaving Chelsea in a bid to boost their chances of being in Spain’s squad for next year’s World Cup in Qatar.

McGarry said: “We are now obviously in the countdown to Qatar, less than a calendar year, and so players are getting itchy feet with regards to if they are not playing regularly they may well miss out, especially players of a certain age.

“That certainly applies to Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso at Chelsea.

“Two full-backs who, at one point, looked absolutely irreplaceable, [before] the emergence of Reece James and the purchase of Ben Chilwell.

“Azpilicueta and Alonso have informed their representatives to find another club or certainly to find alternatives where they believe that they will get playing time.

“They will then get a chance in doing so to earn a place in their respective World Cup squads.”
