Chelsea are busy making moves in the transfer market and have now agreed a £53million deal for RB Leipzig star Timo Werner.
Frank Lampard also wants £75m-rated Bayer Leverkusen wonderkid Kai Havertz next season, while Leicester’s Ben Chilwell remains his No 1 left-back target.
Their spending could reach a whopping £250m with owner Roman Abramovich promising Lampard the funds.
However, the former Derby boss will still need to implement a ‘one in, one out’ transfer policy to balance the books.
A number of players could be set for the Stamford Bridge exit.
WILLIAN AND PEDRO
Two players who look increasingly certain to depart Chelsea this summer are Willian and Pedro, with both out of contract at the end of the month.
Earlier this week, The Sun claimed that Kante was the shock name on a list of players Lampard could choose to axe this summer.
It was reported that the emergence of young midfielder Billy Gilmour, coupled with continued interest from PSG, could mean the Frenchman was sold to raise funds.
This season has been one to forget for Barkley, both on and off the pitch.
Newcastle and West Ham have both been linked with a move for the England midfielder, who would likely command a fee of over £30m despite his recent issues.
Like Kante, the Italian is another player who Lampard could look to cash in on as he revamps his midfield ahead of the new season.
With Lampard eyeing Leicester star Chilwell as his new first-choice left-back, there is every chance the Spaniard could be looking for a new club this summer.
If Chelsea are unable to shift him this summer, Alonso is likely to have to accept a bit-part role for the rest of his time in west London.
One player who looks certain to be on his way out is Michy Batshuayi.
West Ham are reportedly interested in signing the Belgium star on a permanent deal.
Palace are also keen to bring Batshuayi, who has been loaned out to Valencia and Borussia Dortmund previously, back to Selhurst Park for a second spell.
Lampard’s interest in Chilwell can partly be put down to his lack of faith in Alonso and Emerson Palmieri, the other out-and-out left-back in his squad.
The Italy international has only started 15 games in all competitions and has not done enough to make the position his own.
