Premier League giants Chelsea are set for a major revamp this summer, and the Blues could spend up to £200 million under the new ownership.

According to a report from the Telegraph, Chelsea owner Todd Boehly is ready to back Thomas Tuchel in the transfer market with massive funds.

The Blues are expected to lose players like Romelu Lukaku this summer, and they will have to bring in a quality striker at all costs.

Furthermore, they have lost the likes of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen earlier on in the summer, and Chelsea will have to invest in a top-quality centre-back as well.

The London club could look to bring in around six new players in the coming weeks, and it will be interesting to see if they can address the major gaps in the squad now.

The likes of Raheem Sterling have been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in recent weeks, and the Manchester City winger could prove to be an excellent addition.

Chelsea attackers Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner and Christian Pulisic, have been underwhelming this past season. The Blues will have to improve in the final third if they want to challenge the likes of Manchester City for the Premier League title next season.

Meanwhile, Brazilian superstar Neymar has been linked with the move to Stamford Bridge as well, and it will be interesting to see how the situation develops over the next few weeks.

Paris Saint Germain are reportedly prepared to let the 30-year-old leave this summer for a reasonable price, and it remains to be seen with the Chelsea can convince him to move to the Premier League.

Other players on Chelsea’s radar are Matthijs De Ligt, Jules Kounde, Richarlison and Raphinha.

The Blues have been competing at a high level under the management of Thomas Tuchel in recent seasons, but they failed to win a single trophy last year. The fans will be hoping that the summer revamp will allow the Blues to compete with the other Premier League heavyweights and win some silverware.

Chelsea managed to reach the finals of the League Cup and the FA Cup last season, but they were beaten by Liverpool in both competitions.

The Blues will fancy their chances of going all the way this time around with a better squad.
