Chelsea “will look to sell” Malang Sarr this January following his lack of game time at the club – and Conor Gallagher could go as well amid Tottenham interest.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, former Tottenham and England goalkeeper Paul Robinson had little hope that the centre-back would remain at Stamford Bridge after making just 21 appearances since his move in 2020.
As revealed by Football Insider (22 December), the 24-year-old is ready to leave the club this winter with a loan or permanent exit a possibility.
He has been shipped out on loan spells to Porto and Monaco since signing as a free agent from Ligue 1 side Nice, but in his only full season in London during the 2021-22 season, he was little more than a squad player and made just 8 Premier League appearances.
Robinson claimed Sarr was a “victim” of the Blues’ bloated squad and, having not played a single minute of action this season, has no future at the club,
“If you look at the loan moves he’s had at the lack of first-team opportunities, it’s time for him to go,” he told Football Insider.
“Yes, he came with big expectations, but with the new manager there now trying to create a new style, it just seems he’s a victim of the amount of personnel in the squad.
“If you’re not getting a look in before all this happened, and now there are all these players and you’re still not playing, then it’s probably time for him to move on and Chelsea will look to sell.
“I’ve heard about Conor Gallagher potentially going and moving on, who’s played most of the games this season.
