Mauricio Pochettino is looking to sign three players to kick-start his reign at Chelsea.
According to the Daily Mail, the former Paris Saint-Germain and Tottenham boss could even be unveiled this week.
But Pochettino will wait have to wait until the summer to start work, with Frank Lampard currently in charge on an interim basis.
Chelsea have spent almost £600m on new signings under Todd Boehly, but Pochettino is eager to bring in fresh faces ahead of the 2023/2024 campaign.
It is understood the 51-year-old wants a new goalkeeper, central midfielder and striker during his first transfer window at Stamford Bridge and will favour players with Premier League pedigree.
While Pochettino already has an eye on new signings, he would also need to offload several players, not only to trim Chelsea’s bloated squad but also to raise some funds.
