The five Chelsea players who must be sold to fund Frank Lampard’s summer transfer revolution

Chelsea’s summer transfer revolution has already begu.

The Blues completed the signing of Hakim Ziyech from Ajax soon after the January transfer window closed, with the Moroccan international to join up with his new team-mates on July 1.

Chelsea suffered a transfer embargo by FIFA for their signing of youth players previously, meaning they could not bring in any new players last summer.

And while that embargo was reduced to just one window, leaving them clear to make transfers in January, they did not do so.

Lampard is expected to be a busy man in the summer, however, with funds made available to him to add to the signing of playmaker Ziyech.

But the Blues may need to balance the books somewhat.

So we take a look into the players who could be sold to free up some funds for new signings.

Marcos Alonso

Has come back into the side in recent weeks, having been a back-up in the left-back postion.

He scored in the 2-1 win over Tottenham at the weekend, but only appears to be given a chance when Lampard decides to play with three at the back.

There has been plenty of interest in the Spanish full-back, with his father admitting earlier this week that his son would love to play in Italy.

Selling him this summer looks like the best bet for all parties.

Emerson Palmieri

In recent weeks, Lampard has gone for Azpilicueta at left-back and Emerson has been out of the team.

And even when the head coach has gone for three at the back it has been Alonso who has been picked.

Lampard wants to bring in a new left-back this summer, and if that happens then Emerson looks likely to be heading out of Stamford Bridge.
