Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has hinted that there would be a lot of changes at the club this summer.

The Blues boss made this known during his latest press conference as he pointed out that his team is still a long way from challenging the best teams in English football and European football.

Lampard also said that the club’s board is in line with his vision to overhaul the playing squad at Chelsea.

Recent reports had claimed that as many as eight players could be shown the door this summer especially after the thrashing received at the hands of German champions Bayern Munich.

Chelsea were thumped 3-0 at home by the Bavarian giants in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League last 16 tie. Former Arsenal player Serge Gnabry scored twice in the second half to give Bayern Munich a 2-0 lead before Champions League topscorer Robert Lewandowski wrapped up the game.

Bayern Munich striker Lewandowski has 11 goals in the competition this season and he’s the leading goalscorer ahead of Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland who has 10 goals.

Lewandowski won’t be available for the second leg though after he sustained a knee injury in the first leg. He would miss the next four weeks.

On Chelsea, Frank Lampard wants a new goalkeeper this summer after the unimpressive performances of Kepa Arrizabalaga who’s the most expensive shot stopper in world football. The Blues paid his £71m release clause to secure his transfer from Spanish La Liga side Atheltic Bilbao at the start of last season.

Kepa Arrizabalaga has one of the worst save ratio in the English top flight in this campaign.

Lampard also wants a new left-back as he does not fancy current options Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri. Both players could leave Chelsea in the summer with the Blues manager eyeing Ben Chilwell from Leicester City.
