Frank Lampard is still keen on strengthening his squad despite having seem to have worked out his starting 11 following the arrival of multiple international stars.
But with plans of landing yet another set of players, Chelsea would need to part ways with some players so as to realize funds and also create spaces for the new players.
Kepa Arrizabalaga remains a name that is likely to leave the Stamford Bridge after losing his spot to former Rennes goalkeeper, Edouard Mendy.

Nigerian Winger, Victor Moses who also has lost his place in the Blues squad following the departure of Antonio Conte is also another name on the exit list.
Moses has of lately been loaned to several sides as he has refused to opt for an exit but the club’s choice of words and actions shows they are no more interested in retaining the 30-year-old.
Former Leicester City man, Danny Drinkwater could finally be using the exit door after a failed Chelsea career left him to the Development squad.
Since his £35m arrival, Drinkwater immediately fell off track, causing Chelsea to loan him until he lost his squad number to Thiago Silva.
Having spoken of his desires to get his career back on track, the former Man United Academy player could be heading for an abroad show following his September interview with The Telegraph.
Andres Christensen is also considered to be leaving Chelsea after seeing his position faced with great competition since the arrival of Thiago Silva.
Silva’s arrival clearly turned the table for Chelsea defense roles as he has been applauded for his impact in Kurt Zouma’s performances as both stars have become the preferred pairs for Blues defense.

This also provided competition for Antonio Rudiger who also could possibly be leaving after Frank Lampard seem not impressed by the German’s improvement lately.
Chelsea still have Tomori and on-loan Malang Sarr to pick from with the French also impressing at Porto.
Marcos Alonso also lost his spot in the Blues squad and exit is more probable for him now as he has seen over the past games, Frank opting for Emerson as Chilwell’s replacement.
But with Chilwell’s current injury, it will become clearer if Alonso is still part of Lampard’s Agenda or will the English manager opt to having Palmieri Emerson at the left back at all times until Chilwell’s return.

But landing Declan Rice could mean benching N’golo Kante as the English man star’s in the French man’s position. But a more balanced formation could be having two defensive midfielders which is unlikely for Frank Lampard’s attacking mentality.

Borussia Dortmund striker, Erling Haaland has also been rumored to be heading for a Signal Iduna Park exit with focus locked on London Champions marriage after failing to materialize a move to Old Trafford during the past years before he joined Borussia Dortmund.

Timo is currently providing support for Chelsea injured winger and should Blues succeed in landing another winger, then Timo would be faced with the CF role only.
Leon Bailey and Samuel Chukwueze are the two most talked about possibly Chelsea targets as both stars has shown great qualities lately.
