Chelsea transfer overhaul revealed with Lampard looking to get rid of £300m worth of talent but will take £84m LOSS

CHELSEA are willing to listen to offers for TEN big-name first-team stars this summer – but could make an £84million LOSS.

Frank Lampard is open to the concept of selling around £300m of talent this month.

Frank Lampard has some monumental decisions to make this summer

Flop goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga cost the club a world-record £71.6m but has been kept out of the team-mate by veteran backup Willy Caballero at times this term.

Incredibly, the Spanish stopper is worth just £25m now, according to Transfermarkt.

Jorginho is another first-team star on the brink of being sold, with Juventus – under the leadership of former Chelsea chief Maurizio Sarri – keen.

The Italian midfielder cost the Blues £57m – £11m MORE than his current valuation, at just £46m.

Even Antonio Rudiger, once seemingly untouchable in the heart of the Chelsea defence, is on the chopping block.

The German defender could help the club make a small profit – now worth £5m more than the £31m spent to bring him to West London.

Emerson will also command a £4m profit on his initial £17m transfer, with Kurt Zouma (£12m profit) and Andreas Christensen (£22m profit) also helping to fund the Blues’ big summer spend.

However, there are some real blots on the club’s transfer record in recent season.

Most-notably, Danny Drinkwater is now valued at just £4m after a series of off-pitch incidents saw his form on it suffer.

The ex-Leicester man cost Chelsea £34m – with the club set to take a £30m loss.

Michy Batshuayi could cost the club £23m – now priced-up at £12m, way off his £35m initial fee.

The sales of Victor Moses and Tiemoue Bakayoko – if sold for their market value – will see Chelsea take their total losses to a staggering £84m.

But it’s important for Lampard to sell some of his stars, just to make some money.

After all, despite taking an £84m hit, the fire-sale would help raise around £220m.

Chelsea have already splashed out big to sign Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech this summer, with Kai Havertz thought to be on the way.

But with Lampard also chasing a top goalkeeper and a hoard of defenders, he will need more money to get his team challenging for Premier League glory once more.

In goal, Andre Onana, Dean Henderson, Nick Pope, Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Jan Oblak are just five players being targeted.

And Lampard also wants left-back Ben Chilwell and centre-backs Kalidou Koulibaly and Dayot Upamecano in a bid to strengthen his sieve-like defence.

Every penny will count as the overhaul continues, even if it means making an overall loss.
