Chelsea are back in action on Saturday when they face relegation-threatened Burnley at Stamford Bridge. 

The Blues have endured a frustrating season so far and currently sit 11th in the Premier League table, 17 points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa.

With qualification for next season’s Champions League almost impossible, manager Mauricio Pochettino will be looking to ensure his side qualify for one of the other European competitions.

He will also be hoping to lift the FA Cup in May, although his side will have to defeat holders Manchester City in the semi-finals to have any chance of doing so.

Off the pitch, it looks like it could be another busy transfer window in West London.

As per Football Insider, the London side will target three particular positions during the upcoming summer transfer window.

The report claims that those in charge of the club’s recruitment are hoping to add a new goalkeeper, wide forward and striker this summer.

Boehly has spent remarkable sums of money since taking charge of Chelsea just under two years ago

Since Todd Boehly and Clearlake took charge of the club in the summer of 2022, Chelsea have spent more than £1 billion on new signings, but their expenditure is yet to translate into success on the pitch.

Two of the Blues’s signings, namely midfielders Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo, each cost in excess of £100 million, while the likes of Marc Cucurella, Mykhaylo Mudryk and Cole Palmer have also cost the club significant amounts.

Despite their spending and the threat of the Premier League’s profit and sustainability restrictions, it appears that Chelsea will once again be active in the market this summer.

It is also claimed in the report that the club will likely need to sanction the sale of a number of first team players in order to finance new signings.

Conor Gallagher, Marc Cucurella and Trevoh Chalobah have all been linked with moves away from Stamford Bridge in recent months.
