Just in As:Chelsea face an important summer in the transfer market as they look to bounce back from two poor domestic campaigns

Although Todd Boehly has overseen a spend of more than €1 billion on new players since arriving at the club in 2022, there has been no success to show for it, with the Stamford Bridge outfit finishing 12th last season and on course for another disappointing finish this time around.
Mauricio Pochettino arrived at the club last summer with the hope of turning their fortunes around, but another mid-table finish is on the cards for the richly assembled squad – and supporters are not happy.

Pochettino may even be sacked before the 2024-25 campaign starts, with his future coming under severe threat following a 5-0 loss to London rivals Arsenal. However, a 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur and a 5-0 win over West Ham has eased concerns over sack rumours.

Chelsea continue to target a raft of promising young players, but with the squad currently not delivering on the field, might they turn their attentions to more established stars going forward?

Napoli striker Victor Osimhen headlines Chelsea’s summer transfer targets, but the Blues are also looking at alternatives, and many other deals could well be completed in a bid to get their squad into shape.

In addition, they are also looking to sign a new centre-back following the confirmation that Thiago Silva will be leaving, while they are also desperate to sign Palmeiras wonderkid Estevao.
