After securing a top-four finish in the Premier League last Sunday with a 2-0 home win over Wolverhampton Wanderers, the Blues will be looking to lay their hands on the FA Cup when they face Arsenal at Wembley on Saturday evening.

Beyond that, though, Chelsea will be looking ahead to building a team capable of competing for the Premier League title next season by making some big-money signings in the transfer market.

The Blues have already secured the services of Hakim Ziyech from Ajax and Germany international Timo Werner from RB Leipzig, with attacking-midfielder Kai Havertz thought to be the next arrival in West London.

As well as working tirelessly to tie up a deal for the Germany international, Chelsea are continuing to be linked with whole host of other names, including Manchester United shot-stopper Dean Henderson, Jan Oblak of Atletico Madrid, Kalidou Koulibaly of Napoli, Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell and Brentford star Said Benrahma.
