Times: Up to 10 players could leave Chelsea this summer in mass clear-out

Chelsea could be on the brink of a mass summer clear-out as Frank Lampard looks to put his squad through a mass overhaul.

According to The Times, Chelsea could sell up to 10 players this summer as they look at signings such as Ben Chilwell to come in and bolster the squad.

The report mentions Marcos Alonso, Emerson Palmieri, Kurt Zouma, Andreas Christensen, Ross Barkley, N’Golo Kante, and Tiemoue Bakayoko as some of the players that Chelsea could be prepared to listen to offers for.

Kai Havertz is being pursued by Chelsea as they look to tie that one up, but the report mentions Declan Rice of West Ham, and Jose Gimenez from Atletico Madrid as being big targets for the club this summer as well.

It sounds like the Blues boss and his backroom team have a lot of work to conduct, and they can begin with that now as the summer transfer window officially opens today.
