The Blues are set for a busy transfer window and could turn to Real Madrid to fill big holes in their squad.
The summer transfer window is an important opportunity for Frank Lampard to reshape the Chelsea squad into his own image.
The Blues boss has already agreed deals for Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech, while there are reports of Kai Havertz also being close to a move.
While the club’s full transfer plan is contingent on the Champions League, that hasn’t stopped some supporters dreaming big, and news via Marca that Real Madrid are planning to raise €180million through player sales should be music to the ears of most Chelsea fans.
The midfielder has spent this season on loan at Arsenal and, while it has taken him some time to settle, we are slowly starting to see why he earned a move to Real Madrid in the first place.
It’s been claimed Ceballos is less than thrilled at the thought of returning to work under Zinedine Zidane after the Frenchman struggled to accommodate him during his first spell in charge.
A talented all-round midfielder with an eye for a pass, he could be exactly what Lampard is looking for from a deeper position to stitch the game together.
The 23-year-old still has considerable room to grow, and even if Los Blancos’ reported asking price has jumped from £23million to £32million, it could prove a shrewd move in time.
This might sound a bit left-field but hear us out.
Vallejo is an intelligent defender that reads the game well and is comfortable on the ball.
