Ed002 what wingers are we looking at thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Christopher Nkunku (AM/LW/RW) Manchester City have been told by RBL that the player is not for sale. Chelsea and Real Madrid have watched him and he is on their respect lists of potential wingers as all look to shuffle what they have. Arsenal provide a very much less attractive solution. RBL will resist a sale.
Leroy Sane (RW) First choice Hudson-Odoi or Ziyech replacement but Bayern won't want to sell.
Eden Hazard (LW/RW) Real Madrid have problems one way or another with all of their wingers and there is no guarantee any will be at the club next season. He will be another that Real Madrid listen to offers for and has been offered to several Premier League sides .It is difficult to talk of the timings of transfers but Hazard is, like all of the wingers at Real Madrid and Chelsea, potentially available for a transfer. They have already approached Chelsea suggesting an exchange for Reece James but that was of no interest. Whilst there is some support from someone senior at Chelsea, others are not keen to pay €50M for a 30 year old. I think a move unlikely. Has been offered to Newcastle as well.}
Federico Chiesa (W/F) A third party has informed Juventus of possible interest from Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich for next summer. Juventus will not want to sell but if he were to become available you can expect an auction including English sides, probably Chelsea, as well. Much will depend on cash-flow at Juventus next summer whether they buy him and sell on or buy him and keep him. They will value him beyond the means of the likes of Liverpool who could be interested as a Salah replacement. Don't expect him to move. He will sign permanently on a long contract.
Kingsley Coman (LW/RW) Bayern Munich are open to moving the player on and adding a fresh face if a new contract is not signed. He has already been discussed with Chelsea but they have not made an offer and it is dependent on a departure. Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid are interested but at nothing like the asking price. The player has not ruled out signing a new contract but there may not be a good enough offer coming. The asking price could be beyond what any club will pay. Nagelsmann would like him to stay but his representative sees better options elsewhere. Bayern Munich said €100M plus to the English side who enquired. Liverpool are amongst a number of clubs who have asked after his availability - but unless Mane or Salah leave there is no starting place for him. Bayern Munich say only one side has directly approached them. Not first choice for any of the interested sides and the price is prohibitive.
Emerson Rodríguez (RW) Efforts are being made to persuade Chelsea or Manchester City to follow up their scouting of the Columbian to make an offer. The issue would be obtaining a Work Permit to play in England which if anything did happen would mean he would intially be shipped out to another City Group club or to a club affiliated with Chelsea. Monaco have also scouted the player.
Luis Diaz (LW/LM) Porto rejected an offer from Spurs in 2020 and Mr Mourinho is thought to be keen on taking him to Roma and moving Justin Kluivert on permanently. Spurs do remain keen. The player has been offered to Chelsea and Everton and has been scouted by Newcastle, Barcelona, Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund at the behest of his agent. His agent would like to organise a move to Real Madrid. Probably priced out of a move.
Mohamed-Ali Cho (F/RW) Clubs have had to tread carefully due to his age and him having an agent but there is a great deal of interest in the ex-Everton youngster. Angers will resist a sale once he is 18 unless a very good deal is put to them. A number of sides including Southampton, Milan, Atletico and Chelsea have been watching him but he may be best served staying in Ligue 1 for a while longer.}

As usual Ed it’s really appreciated, my personal choice would be chiesa, and I agree, €50m for 30 odd year old injury prone hazard isn’t good business, nkunku would be infesting, and can we push out luck on departures Ed,

{Ed002's Note - Any or all of the wide players could be sold.}

To hear Sane is first choice is a shock.
Cheers Ed002.

Love that rundown on the wingers, Ed. Thank you for that :)

Just a quick follow up question on your reply that any or even all of the wide players could be let go. Pretty sure this includes Pulisic, Ziyech and Hudson-Odoi. But does it also include Havertz, Werner and Mount? Those guys haven't really played as pure wingers, but they've played in support of a central striker (as sort of inside forwards) .

{Ed002's Note - Not Herbert’s or Mound as they are not wide players.}

Karin Adeyemi is the winger/ forward I think Chelsea should target.
