Chelsea planning major squad overhaul this summer

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is reportedly keen on a major overhaul of the squad in the summer irrespective of whether the club qualify for the Champions League or not.

The west London side have remained in the top-four of the Premier League for most of the current season but their form has been pretty average over the past three months where they have failed to win back-to-back games.

According to The Sun, the Blues board will back Lampard with plenty of funds in the summer and part of the sum could be recouped from the sale of a number of players.

The same outlet claims that Arrizabalaga could be one of the leading names heading through the exit door after recently getting the axe for the goalkeeper's role.

Pedro, Willian and Olivier Giroud are likely to leave the club when their contract expire in the summer and reports claim Kurt Zouma, Jorginho and Ross Barkley are facing the possibility of being sold.

Aside from those players, one of Emerson or Marcos Alonso could be offloaded with Lampard said to be keen on recruiting a new left-sided defender ahead of next season.
