Chelsea Transfer Odds: Which players could Enzo Maresca target this summer?

Following the abrupt departure of Mauricio Pochettino, Chelsea have moved to appoint Leicester City boss Enzo Maresca as the club's new manager.

Fresh from guiding Leicester to the Championship title, Italian Maresca will be tasked with steering Chelsea back towards the summit of the Premier League table with the Blues finishing sixth under predecessor Pochettino last term.

Previously working closely with Pep Guardiola as part of Manchester City's backroom staff, Maresca is a coach who shares the Catalan's possession-oriented tactical philosophy.

With Chelsea likely to be typically busy in this summer's transfer market under the auspices of the club's free-spending American ownership spearheaded by Todd Boehly, we consider which positions on the field Maresca may wish to strengthen and which players the club could target.

Transfer Specials


Despite signing two new goalkeepers last summer - Robert Sanchez and Dorde Petrovic - reports suggest Chelsea may be in the market for another new stopper ahead of the new season.

Ex-Brighton keeper Sanchez was expected to be the club's number one, but after a disappointing start to his Chelsea career and extended injury problems, it was Serbian Petrovic who ended the season as the Blues' first pick in goal.

24-year-old Petrovic performed commendably when called upon, but Chelsea may now wish to recruit a new bonafide number one goalkeeper to help take them to the next level.

Giorgi Mamardshvili

*Market settled on club the player is eligible to play for on 5th September 2024, including loan deals, except when a player is signed and immediately loaned out.

Chelsea are one of a plethora of clubs who have been credited with an interest in highly-rated Valencia goalkeeper Giorgi Mamardshvili.

Part of a talented Georgian international side who will compete in the country's first ever major tournament at the Euros this summer, 23-year-old Mamardshvili will have the opportunity to catch the eye on the biggest stage in Germany.

At 6ft 6ins, Mamardshvili is a huge presence, with the Georgian keeping 13 clean sheets in La Liga last season - the fourth most in the division.

Aaron Ramsdale

(Odds will display when the market is available).

One player who could be keen to seal a summer transfer is Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, with the Englishman usurped by Spaniard David Raya as the Gunners' number one over the course of the 2023/24 campaign.

An undoubtedly talented goalkeeper who possesses terrific distribution skills, 26-year-old Ramsdale could represent an ideal option for Chelsea in their search for a new long-term number one.

Arsenal may be reluctant to sell to a London rival, however, with Ramsdale perhaps more likely to end up elsewhere ahead of the 2024/25 season.

Attacking midfield

As a club with ambitions of breaking back into the top four and challenging for major titles, Chelsea will have their eyes on all of the best attacking talent available on the market.

Although the Blues have spent heavily on attacking players since Boehly's takeover two years ago, a number of these new signings have flattered to deceive.

Wingers Mykhailo Mudryk, Raheem Sterling and Noni Madueke cost over £160m collectively, but with all three proving inconsistent and failing to nail down a consistent starting berth, Chelsea may seek to recruit fresh blood in this area this summer.

Michael Olise

(Odds will display when the market is available).

After coming close to completing a £35m deal for Crystal Palace's Michael Olise last summer, Chelsea may make a fresh attempt to prise their long-term target to Stamford Bridge.

Although suffering with injury problems throughout the 2023/24 season, Olise was still able to showcase his talent in the Premier League - recording 10 goals and six assists in England's top flight.

After finishing last season in sensational form under Palace boss Oliver Glasner, the 22-year-old will likely be one of the most coveted players in England during this summer's transfer window.

Pedro Neto

(Odds will display when the market is available).

Having developed into a standout performer for Wolves in the Premier League, Portuguese winger Pedro Neto is garnering transfer interest from a host of the top clubs in the division.

Registering three goals and 11 assists in all competitions in an injury-blighted season for Gary O'Neil's side, Neto is a two-footed winger who possesses explosive pace and a terrific football brain.

A proven quantity in England's top flight, the Chelsea hierarchy may view 24-year-old Neto as a relatively risk-free acquisition, although the ex-Braga winger has been injury prone in his time at Wolves.

Jadon Sancho

(Odds will display when the market is available).

Frozen out at Manchester United following a disagreement with manager Erik Ten Hag, and then loaned out to previous club Borussia Dortmund in January, Jadon Sancho's career is approaching a critical juncture as he prepares to return to Old Trafford this summer.

It is currently unclear whether or not Sancho has a future at Man Utd, but after a successful loan spell back in Dortmund where he has shone in the Champions League, there are likely to be a number of potential suitors should he become available for transfer.

Sancho has commented on how at home he feels in Dortmund, but could the 24-year-old also prosper in his original hometown of London at Chelsea?

Marcus Rashford

(Odds will display when the market is available).

Marcus Rashford is another player who seems to have reached a crossroads at Man Utd, with the academy graduate left out of England's Euros squad after mustering only seven Premier League goals in 2023/24.

26-year-old Rashford has been a brilliant player for the Red Devils in the past, but his extended struggle for form has brought his future at the club into question.

Chelsea have previous for picking up high-profile English players seeking a new challenge having brought Raheem Sterling to Stamford Bridge from Manchester City in 2022, and an approach for Rashford this summer is not out of the question.


(Odds will display when the market is available).

A key player for Real Madrid under Carlo Ancelotti, the future of Brazilian speedster Rodrygo at Los Blancos has been cast into doubt by the impending arrival of French superstar Kylian Mbappe.

There are some suggestions in the Spanish capital that the acquisition of Mbappe could see Rodrygo become sidelined at the Santiago Bernabeu, prompting interest in the Brazil international throughout the continent.

As one of the most dangerous forwards in world football, Chelsea would naturally be interested in bringing Rodyrgo to Stamford Bridge, but it's difficult to foresee a player of the South American's quality moving to a club without Champions League football.


Arguably the most glaring problem area in Chelsea's squad at the moment is up front, with the Blues left short in the striking department throughout the 2023/24 season.

Nicolas Jackson was first choice in attack for the majority of the campaign after signing from Villarreal last summer, and although the 22-year-old did improve as the season wore on - finishing on 14 Premier League goals - the Senegal international's reliability in front of goal was often called into question.

Chelsea will hope Christopher Nkunku will be able to make a bigger impact in the new season after spending most of last term sidelined with injury issues, but the Blues are still expected to recruit a new number nine this summer.

Victor Osimhen

(Odds will display when the market is available).

One striker Chelsea have long been linked with is Napoli hitman Victor Osimhen.

Capturing interest across the continent after firing Napoli to the club's first Scudetto in 33 years with 26 Serie A goals in 2022/23, Osimhen is now recognised as one of the top strikers in Europe.

After Napoli languished to a pitiful 10th-placed finish in their defence of their Serie A title last term, the Nigeria international may now be keen for a fresh challenge with the Premier League a possible destination.

Viktor Gyokeres

(Odds will display when the market is available).

Another striker being courted by Europe's top clubs is Sporting Lisbon's Swedish marksman Viktor Gyokeres.

Signed from Championship side Coventry City for £17.5m last summer, Gyokeres has been a revelation in the Portuguese capital - firing 29 league goals as Ruben Amorim's side stormed to the title.

This level of goalscoring output does not go unnoticed, and 25-year-old Gyokeres's all-round skillset has made him a man in demand across the continent.
