Kepa, Antonio Rudiger & Jorginho Among 10 Players Chelsea Are Open to Selling

Chelsea are willing to listen to offers for as many as ten first team players, as Frank Lampard looks to fund a substantial overhaul of his playing squad.

The Blues have enjoyed a relatively successful first campaign under Lampard, reaching the FA Cup final and qualifying for next season's Champions League after securing a top-four finish in the Premier League.

But despite those positives, Lampard will be the first to admit that his team have not been good enough defensively. In the Premier League alone, Chelsea conceded 54 goals and were bailed out by their free-flowing attack - who scored the third highest number of goals.

Now, Sky Sports report that Lampard is willing to part company with up to ten first-team players this summer - with nine of those players operating in defensive minded positions.

Kepa Arrizabalaga, Jorginho, Antonio Rudiger, Kurt Zouma and Andreas Christiansen are the highest profile names who will be allowed to leave if a suitable offer comes in, while Emerson Palmieri and Michy Batshuayi are also expendable.

Jan Oblak and Andre Onana have been tipped as possible replacements, and the club continue to be linked with Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell, as well as Real Madrid's Sergio Reguilon, who excelled on loan at Sevilla last season.
