If you briefly glance at Chelsea supporters on social media, it won't be too long before you come across a fan calling for the club to sign a midfielder this summer. The Blues are set for a massive squad revamp over the coming months following Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital's takeover from Roman Abramovich.

Antonio Rudiger completed his free transfer to Real Madrid on Thursday, while numerous other Chelsea players are expected to follow the German out of the exit door. Andreas Christensen is set to depart, while the likes of Cesar Azpilicueta, Marcos Alonso, Jorginho, Ross Barkley, N'Golo Kante, Hakim Ziyech, Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner and Christian Pulisic are also being linked with moves away from Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea will need to look at replacing any outgoings from their squad, as well as looking to bolster Thomas Tuchel's options to try and bridge the gap to Liverpool and Manchester City. The midfield is an area that could definitely do with some surgery.

As mentioned above, Jorginho, Barkley and Kante have all been involved in recent transfer rumours. The midfield trio all have just 12 months remaining on their respective contracts. As of right now, it looks like Chelsea are more determined to extend Kante's stay than the other two.

Conor Gallagher is expected to return to Chelsea this summer and fight for a place in the first-team. The England international, who spent last season on loan at Crystal Palace, recently had a positive meeting with Tuchel regarding his future, football.london understands. Billy Gilmour could also stay with the Blues next season and fight for a place.
