A recent report in the English media has moved to name all the players Chelsea are willing to sell this summer.
Frank Lampards first season as Chelsea manager has been a rather mixed bag.
The Blues would finish 4th in the Premier League to qualify for the Champions League a feat many didnt see the capital outfit achieving this term with a transfer ban and no Eden Hazard.
But whilst finishing 4th is a great achievement for Lampard in his first season as a manger in the Premier League, there is still clearly a lot of work to be done at Stamford Bridge before the capital outfit can begin to challenge the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool.
The Blues main issue this season has very clearly been their backline.
Chelsea possessed the worst defensive record of the top 11 Premier League sides in 2019/20 and even conceded more than 15th-place Brighton.

So, whilst signing the likes of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech will no doubt be great for Chelseas already solid attacking threat, Blues fans are probably wondering when the defensive reinforcements are coming?
Its claimed Lampard has admitted his side need to improve defensively, but that Chelsea would need to sell before they can buy.
And now, on Tuesday, Sky Sports are reporting that the Londoners are willing to listen to offers for up to 10 first-team players.
The majority of names on the list are unlikely to surprise many Chelsea fans with fringe stars Emerson, Victor Moses, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Danny Drinkwater and Michy Batshuayi mentioned.
The out of form Kepa, who Lampard once again benched for the FA Cup final last week, is also unsurprisingly named as a player Chelsea are willing to part with.
The list is rounded off by four players who have played a fair bit for Chelsea this term with it claimed the capital outfit are willing to listen to offer for all of Jorginho, Antonio Rudiger, Kurt Zouma and Andreas Christiansen.
One defender Chelsea have been linked with recently is left-back, Sergio Reguilon. Read more about that here.
