Seven Chelsea youngsters who could save Roman Abramovich millions this summer

This summer could be an interesting one for Chelsea with the transfer window potentially looking like a difficult one for players to come in.

Frank Lampard has been lauded this season for his use of the Blues academy and giving those loanees who have returned a chance to prove themselves in the first team.

There is a chance that the money might not be available to spend on big transfers, and Lampard might have to use the academy and returning loanees once again.

But who are the contenders to move into a position in the first team next season?

Conor Gallagher

Out of all the loanees this season, Conor Gallagher has been the most impressive during his time at Charlton Athletic and Swansea City.

The 20-year-old is aiming for Championship promotion this season with the Swans if football can get back under way and has proved himself as a good goalscoring midfielder.

Lampard has been looking for more goals from his players in the final third, and Gallagher as a real chance to be a decent box-to-box player for the Blues.

His chance to impress in pre-season might have been scuppered due to the change in the football calendar, but Lampard has still been keeping an eye on the youngster.

Trevoh Chalobah

The younger brother of Nathaniel, Trevoh has been on loan for two seasons, and once again is playing a big part of Huddersfield Town’s fight against relegation.

Chalobah has become a versatile player during his spells on loan, moving more into a defensive central midfield position, away from his more natural centre-back role.

He signed a new contract in the summer having almost left the club, and could be an asset next season, with the ability to play in a couple of positions.

The defence is expected to be a position which Lampard would be hoping to improve, and Chalobah could help do that.
