Kalou and Bosingwa follow Drogba out of Chelsea – Who is coming in?

There are lots of Chelsea transfer rumours flying about just now, but the club needs to make room for any incoming players. The Blues have already said goodbye to striking legend Didier Drogba and have also decided not to offer new contracts to Salomon Kalou and Jose Bosingwa, according to the Daily Star.

At 26-years old, Kalou is far from being past his best, and has been a good servant to Chelsea since joining the club from Feyenoord in 2006. He has played in 244 games and scored 58 goals with 40 assists. Used mainly on the left wing or as a support striker, his departure will leave a gap just where Eden Hazard likes to operate. Could this be a clue? Hazard is, actually, equally at home on either flank and is a defender’s nightmare.

Bosingwa has not featured so heavily for Chelsea, making 118 appearances in all competitions during his four years at Stamford Bridge. Often used as cover, the arrival of Gary Cahill and David Luiz has made his stay at Chelsea more unnecessary. There have been rumblings that Gregory Van Der Wiel is a possible replacement…

Both Kalou and Bosingwa will go out on high though, having started against Munich for the most glorious game in Chelsea history.

    What kinda bussines is Ron gourlay embarking on, letting go a 26yr old kalou and retaining a no football-life like malouda & essien?
    Though am no big fan of kalou.
    Malouda & essien had had their best for the club.

  2. Alan Frank says

    This is great news! Lets just hope we hear that Malouda is also joining them on the way out before we start bringing in far better replacements.

    it is quite unfortunate that a high profile player like didier drogba is allowed to leave,after all his contributions to d club,while essien,sturidge,maluda,lukaku,fereira are retained.we need good wingers,midfielders,and a deadly stricker atleast.to compliment what drogba did.clubs should be made to fear chelsea

  10. freddie says
