Chelsea have been one of the busiest clubs in Europe in the summer transfer window, with the Blues strengthening across the pitch.
Despite a promising Premier League campaign which saw Frank Lampard’s side seal a top four place, the Blues’ season ended with a sour taste.
Defeat to Arsenal in the FA Cup final was followed by elimination to eventual winners Bayern Munich in the Champions League, with Lampard admitting afterwards that he learnt a lot about his squad.

Kai Havertz arrived from Bayern Leverkusen for a club record fee that could rise to £89million, depending on add-ons, whilst fellow Germany international Timo Werner also joined from the Bundesliga.
Hakim Ziyech was signed from Ajax to add creative quality to Chelsea’s attacking midfield slots, after the departures of Pedro and Willian on free transfers.
Meanwhile, at the back Lampard landed his number one left-back target in Ben Chilwell from Leicester City for a fee of around £50million.
Thiago Silva also arrived on a free transfer after his release from Paris Saint-Germain, whilst centre-back Malang Sarr also joined as a free agent after his departure from Nice.
Even with the mass influx of quality, the Blues are not done just yet, with Lampard keen on adding a new goalkeeper to their ranks to compete with Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak and Lille stopper Mike Maignan have been linked with a move to west London, along with Manchester United’s Dean Henderson but the latter will not be moving to Stamford Bridge after signing a new deal at Old Trafford.
