Kepa and Batshuayi out, Onana and Dembele in – The best swap deals for Chelsea this summer

Something which might become more prevalent over the summer is the idea of swaps with clubs, with some money thrown into the mix along with it.

That could be a way for Chelsea to move on some players off their books, while also bringing some fresh talent for Frank Lampard to build his team around.

Onana has come through the Ajax ranks and impressed during his time with the Dutch club, being one of their standouts in the run to the Champions League semi-final.
