Chelsea have already been active in the transfer market ahead of the 2020-21 campaign, and Frank Lampard is expected to make more additions at Stamford Bridge in the coming months.
The Blues have already bolstered their frontline with the acquisitions of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner from Ajax and RB Leipzig respectively, with Chelsea looking to mount a serious challenge for silverware next season.
Lampard must first navigate a Champions League last-16 second leg with Bayern Munich, but with Chelsea already 3-0 down in the tie, the Blues manager can be forgiven for already looking ahead to the future.
Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Stamford Bridge.
Wednesday morning's Chelsea transfer talk news roundup:
Crystal Palace's star man Wilfried Zaha helped the Eagles to Premier League survival once again during the most recent campaign, but the Ivory Coast international is expected to be a man in demand during the summer window.
Zaha was linked with big-money moves to both Arsenal and Everton last summer, but a move away from Sehurst Park ultimately failed to materialise as the two clubs refused to meet Palace's £80m asking price.
However, according to The Sun, the Eagles are now prepared to accept a cut-price figure of £30m for the 27-year-old given the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic, alerting Chelsea and Manchester United to the possibility of a swoop.
Zaha, who scored four goals and set up five more during the 2019-20 Premier League season, is under contract at Selhurst Park until 2023.
With Chelsea already adding to their mammoth wage bill after securing the signatures of Ziyech and Werner, there will inevitably be some outgoings as the Stamford Bridge hierarchy look to balance the books.
Several fringe names are supposedly being made available for transfer in order to free up funds for further signings, with as many as 10 players believed to be transfer-listed by the Blues as Lampard plans a summer overhaul.
The report claims that Kurt Zouma, Andreas Christensen, Antonio Rudiger, Emerson Palmieri, Victor Moses, Danny Drinkwater, Michy Batshuayi and Tiemoue Bakayoko will all be allowed to depart should any reasonable bids come in for them.
