Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been heavily backed in the transfer window with the Blues signing seven players to strengthen the squad.

After completing the signing of Edouard Mendy from Rennes on Thursday, the Blues are now set to trim the squad.

According to reports, Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger is set to leave the Blues after failing to make an appearance for the Blues this season.

Chelsea midfielders Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are also expected to leave the club before the 5 October transfer deadline. Premier League side Aston Villa are interested in both players but can only sign one due to Premier League rules.

Chelsea also want rid of Tiemoue Bakayoko and will prefer to sell the midfielder after a couple of loan spells at AC Milan and Monaco.

PSG have reportedly turned to Bakayoko after failing to land their other defensive midfield targets. Leonardo took Bakayoko to AC Milan on loan in 2018/19 and the sporting director is keen to do the same again with the option to buy next summer.

    I just hope Lampard won’t frustrate the players. Otherwise he may be thinking that he is building the team meanwhile he is dismantling it. Let him learn to embrace the presence and uniqueness of every player. Let him keep these young midfielders and defenders if he is to build a good future for himself and the club.

    For me Barkley is better than jogenho

  3. Lampard must not sell Rudiger and Abraham please.let every player to play at his position. Mount must be benched and harvech play as an attacker, pulisic and ziyech as wingers and Werner as a striker

  4. Not Abraham but odoi. Christian is not at the level of defending. Keep ludiger and odoi. Pulisic and ziyech,harvech and Werner must play together. Ben silver and rudiger as well. You will not lost that game
