It was a busy summer at Chelsea following the takeover by Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital, and the new owners wasted little time getting busy in the transfer market.
The Blues added the likes of Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly and Marc Cucurella on their way to spending in excess of £200million during their first transfer window. However, Chelsea saw plenty of activity in the opposite direction too, with some intense decisions made as players parted ways with the club.
The club took a loss on the likes of Timo Werner, while Chelsea parted ways with Ross Barkley for free despite a year remaining on his deal. As such football.london takes a look at how the players who left over the summer are doing in their new pastures this far.
Timo Werner (RB Leipzig) – It’s hard not to consider Werner as back at home in Leipzig, and the German forward wasted little time in finding his goalscoring touch back in the Bundesliga. The 26-year-old has netted nine times in 16 appearances and added four assists but saw his World Cup dream crushed when he tore a ligament against Shakhtar Donetsk just weeks before the tournament.
