They will have to comply with the financial regulations. They have secured qualification to the UEFA Champions League and they need to sign quality players to improve their squad as well.

It will be interesting to see if Aston Villa can bring in the right reinforcements without overspending this summer.

Meanwhile, Kellyman would be a quality long-term investment for Chelsea and he could develop into an important first team player for them. The attacker has been compared to Kai Havertz in terms of style and he has the potential to develop into a quality Premier League attacker.
