Chelsea lose another youngster as they look to raise funds


Chelsea lose another youngster as they look to raise funds

Transfer window still open

While the transfer window slammed shut on the 31st August for all major leagues, it remains open in both Russia and Turkey for the next week. This means that Premier League clubs can continue to offload their players to these clubs, with Arsenal duo Sead Kolasinac and Mohammed Elneny just two players linked with making the switch.

However, for now it is Chelsea who have taken advantage of the situation, with youth star Tino Anjorin heading to Lokomotiv Moscow on loan.

Anjorin, a midfielder by trade, made 3 senior appearances last season, but with the arrival of Saul Niguez on loan from Atletico Madrid, Anjorin would likely see his opportunities reduced further this season were he to remain at Stamford Bridge.

As per The Athletic, the Russian side have an option to buy inserted into the loan deal, set at 17 million pounds, which can be activated in January.

The buy back army

In case it is indeed activated, Anjorin has become the latest player to have a buy-back clause in his contract, with Chelsea able to re-sign the youngster for 40 million pounds (34 million euros). He becomes yet another player in Chelsea’s buy back army, which also includes Tammy Abraham and Valentino Livramento.

The business done in the youth department this summer has paved the way for the club to finance a move for Romelu Lukaku but, even with the buy back clauses inserted into the contracts of their most promising players, could they come to pay heavily for their departure in the years to come?
