How Frank Lampard can help Chelsea receive £42m transfer windfall

Chelsea are expected to have a very busy summer transfer window both in terms of incomings and outgoings.

The Blues are likely to add a new central midfielder to their ranks and are expected to strengthen their backline since a fair few first-team members have doubtful futures.

Antonio Rudiger, Cesar Azpilicueta and Andreas Christensen are all out of contract this summer, with neither at this stage looking likely to commit their long term futures at Stamford Bridge.

There’s also uncertainty surrounding whether manager Thomas Tuchel plans to integrate out-on-loan trio Billy Gilmour, Conor Gallagher and Armando Broja for next season, with recent reports stating that Frank Lampard is monitoring their situations and could attempt to bring in at least one for next season.

It’s no surprise to see why the former Blues midfielder is interested in the profiles of these three players, particular Gallagher and Broja.

On loan at Crystal Palace, 22-year-old Gallagher has been in fine form for Patrick Vieira’s Eagles this season, scoring seven and assisting a further three in twenty-one league appearances so far.

Meanwhile, Broja is attracting interest from a whole host of clubs in Europe and it’s not surprising to see why many are keen on the 20-year-old forward.

The 6ft 3in striker is a threat in behind, runs the channels brilliantly, can link attacks together in deeper positions and has notched six goals in the Premier League for the Saints, with his most recent coming in a win against Antonio Conte’s Tottenham.

Should Everton decide to sign all three of Gilmour (£13.5 million), Gallagher (£19.8 million) and Broja (£8.1 million) on permanent deals, it could result in Chelsea receiving a total of just under £42 million in sales, according to transfermarkt, although if the three were to be sold, it’s highly likely the Blues would command much higher fees.
