Chelsea are now planning a shocking £200million squad overhaul with Juventus Star Miralem Pjanic and Lautaro Martinez among others, MySportDab reports.
The Blues are now ready to invest massively in their squad after the end of this season after the club’s transfer ban was listed which stopped Lampard from buying anyone last summer.
Coach Frank Lampard is very keen to sign a goalkeeper and striker among other key spots and has identified three players in the Italian Serie A he would like at Stamford Bridge.
According to The Evening Standard, the Blues are ready to spend over £200m on three big names players in the Italian Serie A.
Chelsea’s Top Three Transfer Targets!
1. Miralem Pjanic
Among the three is Juventus midfielder Pjanic, who may want to leave Italy after falling from the first team XI for most matches.
Former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has switched to a midfield trio of Matuidi, Rodrigo Bentancur and and Aaron Ramsey in recent weeks, leaving Pjanic out.
MySportDab understands Chelsea would need to submit a bid of at least £55m for Juventus to sell their key player.
Lampard may be willing to sell Jorginho as part of a swap-deal, a player signed by Sarri while at Chelsea in the English Premier League.
2. Lautaro Martinez
Frank Lampard was also desperate to sign a striker in the January transfer window to create competition for Tammy Abraham but failed to sign anyone.
The Blues are now among the list of top clubs interested in Lautaro Martinez after his stunning performance for Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan team.
Despite serious demands from Barcelona, Antonio Conte seems determined not to sell one his key players but with Mauro Icardi still likely to return to the club they could be persuaded to sell if a good bid is made.
3. Gianluigi Donnarumma
MySportDab can confirm that the third Serie A player on this list is young AC Milan Goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has lost his spot as Chelsea’s No 1 earlier this year after a series of bad errors.
He was replaced for some weeks by Willy Caballero but came back into the Chelsea XI before the season was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
If Lampard decides to sell his first-choice goalkeeper then the Blues would be hoping to regain the £72m they spent on Kepa in 2018.
