A display outside Chelsea’s home ground, Stamford Bridge, now looks very different following a number of departures from the club.

The Blues have been very active in terms of departures throughout the summer transfer window so far.

Seven senior players have so far departed the Blues, who ended up with a dismal 12th place Premier League finish last season.

With Mauricio Pochettino now leading the new era at Chelsea, fans will be desperate for improvement in the coming months.

A refresh of talent in the squad is needed ahead of the new campaign, with a mass exodus seemingly ongoing.

Such departures have had a drastic effect on promotional displays outside their Stamford Bridge home in west London.

One fan on tweeted a picture at the ground on Wednesday of the collage which demonstrates the rate at which the overhaul is going.

Walls leading up to the gates were coated in stars of the club last season, but now have large and noticeable gaps.

The departed players’ rough outlines can still just about be seen, although those spaces are likely to be filled.

For now though, Marc Cucurella, Ben Chilwell and Mykhailo Mudryk are separated from Trevoh Chalobah and Carney Chukwuemeka.

Another wall just has Thiago Silva and Hakim Ziyech, although the latter is also likely to leave this summer.

N’Golo Kante was the first player confirmed to leave Chelsea as he signed for Al Ittihad before Kalidou Koulibaly moved to Al Hilal.

Mateo Kovacic then completed a switch to Manchester City and Edouard Mendy went to Al Ahli, with Kai Havertz joining Arsenal.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek has now signed for AC Milan and on Wednesday, Mason Mount moved up north to Manchester United.

More departures are expecting before the end of the window, as well as new arrivals.

Christopher Nkunku and Nicolas Jackson are Chelsea’s first signings of the summer as the Blues’ revolution progresses.
