Chelsea look set to make some major changes to their squad this summer as reports link them with five new signings to reshape Jose Mourinho’s squad for another title challenge next season.
The Blues already have a superb set of players with plenty of strength in depth, illustrated by their comfortable Premier League title win and the addition of a victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the Capital One Cup final.
Chelsea may now look to trim down their squad of unneeded players as well, with speculation suggesting four could leave while five new players come in at Stamford Bridge, with the movement set to be as follows:
Heading out in a possible swap deal, Loic Remy could be axed by Chelsea despite a decent season as backup to Diego Costa. Still, the Frenchman has also looked injury prone and is perhaps not a reliable long-term option.
Coming in as part of the deal, Alexandre Lacazette could leave Lyon for Chelsea this summer and would certainly represent a big improvement upfront.
