Lampard planning to let eight players leave

Lampard plotting massive overhaul at Chelsea with EIGHT players set to leave

The Blues will splash the cash during the offseason, and Lampard has identified the names that are surplus to his requirements.

Chelsea seems destined to see the end of the season without new silverware, and coach Frank Lampard has already listed the names of the players he is ready to send packing.

According to a report by Spanish newspaper As, the former midfielder is set to exercise a massive overhaul at Stamford Bridge, with eight players leaving the club. Lampard's plan includes moves in every position, as per the report shared in the Spanish media outlet.

The first player to leave the club is goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, who lost his starting spot against Willy Caballero. The goalie is seen by many as a flop, and Chelsea will try to recover at least half of what they paid to Athletic a couple of seasons ago for his services.

In defense, up to three players have seen a price tag slapped on to their names. Marcos Alonso, Emerson and Kurt Zouma are those set to leave the club, with the two left backs being those Lampard wants to dismiss as soon as possible.

In midfield, Jorginho and Ross Barkley are seen as surplus to the coach's requirements. The Brazilian-born player has seen his time on the pitch go down after Sarri left, and Barkley has not been as decisive as the club wanted, which should be enough to add their names to this list.

Last, but not least, Pedro and Willian have been named as the two strikers that will leave the club this summer. Lampard's idea involves bringing young players to this squad, and two players entering their early 30s don't seem to fit his plans. Willian was linked to a move to Camp Nou, and since his contract is set to expire this summer, he is one of the safest bets to leave the club in the next months.

Once this transfers have been completed, Chelsea will try to sign two players deemed as key by Lampard. The first one is none other than Chelsea's Ben Chillwell, while the second piece of Lampard's puzzle would be Atlético's Jan Oblak, according to As' report.
