Chelsea aren't afraid of spending after splashing nearly £200m last summer to acquire key talents that included Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chillwel and champions league hero Kai Havertz.
With Thomas Tuchel looking to mount champions league title defence and challenge for major trophies ahead of next season, additional summer signings are expected as the Blues aim to revamp their squad.
Reports have linked Chelsea to key players that include Borrusia Dortmund and Norwegian international forward Erling Haaland and Bayern Munich defender Nicholas Sule.
With Thomas Tuchel promising to build a formidable team, a daunting task is ahead but as previously seen the German tactician can deliver after leading the Blues to unprecedented champions league triumph and a fourth place finish.
And according to Chelsea Goal correspondent Nizaar Kinsella Chelsea are close to finalizing deal for highly talented teenager Lewis Brate with movement to Brighton now imminent. The player has produced promising performances but with first team playing time minimal, the door has come knocking.
