Chelsea have submitted their retained list to the Premier League ahead of the 2019-2020 season.

Meanwhile, as many as eight Nigeria-eligible players have been retained by the Stamford Bridge outfit, including three who have made appearances for the Super Eagles.
Victor Moses, Kenneth Omeruo and Ola Aina have been retained along with Tammy Abraham, Fikayo Tomori, Faustino Anjorin, Ike Ugbo and Jordan Aina.
