- Chelsea have spent around £200million during the ongoing summer transfer window
- The spending spree has seen Lampard add an array of superstars within his ranks
- Defence, midfield and attack are the key departments the tactician has strengthened
Chelsea are set for an exciting new 2020/21 season following a busy summer window that has seen the club complete five major signings.
Of all the top Premier League clubs, the Blues have been the most active in the transfer market, with the west London club now priding themselves with ridiculous strength in depth.
Chelsea's top hierarchy has backed Frank Lampard with a number of fresh legs including Timo Werner and Kai Havertz both who arrived from the Bundesliga.
Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell and Thiago Silva are the other players the Premier League giants have signed in a spending spree amounting to over £200million.
And all the five with the exception of Malang Sarr who signed on a free transfer are expected to walk straight into the starting XI for Chelsea's EPL curtain-raiser against Brighton on Monday, September 14.
With the club yet to sign Kepa Arrizabalaga's replacement, the Spaniard is sure to start between the sticks ahead of Willy Caballero.
Thiago Silva is due to take over from Kurt Zouma at the heart of defence alongside Antonio Rudiger.
Ben Chilwell will play in the left-back, with Azpilicueta playing on the right.
In the midfield, Kai Havertz could start ahead of both Ross Barkley and Loftus-Cheek, partnering N'Golo Kante and Mason Mount.
Timo Werner is sure to lead the attack line ahead of Abraham and Giroud, with Ziyech and Pulisic playing on either flank.
Lampard will be hoping his new-look side will challenge for titles in the next campaign, having ended last term without a trophy.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that in Spain Dutchman Frenkie de Jong can confirm that all is not well in Barcelona camp following Lionel Messi's announcement about leaving the club.
The 33-year-old has been linked with a number of clubs since he handed the Catalans his transfer request late last month.
Despite having 12 more months on his current deal with the Blaugrana, the Argentine believes he has the right to walk out of the club for free this summer.
