Chelsea face an early exit from the Champions League after a 3-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge at the hands of Bayern Munich.
And now Frank Lampard has been told he will need up to five players in the summer at Chelsea.
That includes someone to alleviate the pressure on Tammy Abraham upfront.
The Blues have had an inconsistent season so far but have a number of youngsters getting to grips with top-tier football.
But in the summer, the west London outfit will need strengthening.
That is according to BT Sport pundits Owen Hargreaves and Rio Ferdinand, who insisted a fair amount of cash might need to be splashed.
Hargreaves said: “At least four or five – not quantity just quality. Real quality players who can make the difference
“Every Bayern player made a difference last night at some point in the game.
“Frank had too many players who haven't played enough football – whether its [Ross] Barkley or [Olivier] Giroud”
And Ferdinand insisted that the Blues boss, though manoeuvring his own style of play, may need a new forward.
He said: “He is going to have to implement his own philosophy.
“But he's also going to have to dip into that transfer market and make some waves with the opportunity he has in the next window.

“Upfront (is where he most needs to add) – Tammy Abraham does score but he's young and needs someone to come and help with that responsibility.”
