The arrival of a new boss will, inevitably, see changes made to the squad.

One area of the squad that Maurizio Sarri will have to serve judgement on pretty quickly is the midfield.

In the last twelve months, Chelsea have added significantly to that area of the squad, last summer they brought in Tiemoue Bakayoko and then further added Ross Barkley and Danny Drinkwater, neither of whom made the kind of impact hoped for.

Already, this summer, the club has spent big bringing Jorginho to the club, for a reputed £50 million from Napoli.

Throw into the mix the fact that the club also has N’Golo Kante and Cesc Fabregas on the books and you can see that we’re overloaded in that part of the pitch and that’s without even considering the emergence, as a Premier League player, last season of Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

By my reckoning, Sarri will have at his disposal

• Jorginho
• Kante
• Barkley
• Loftus-Cheek
• Drinkwater
• Fabregas
• Bakayoko

surely too many even when you consider we’ve been lumbered with a Europa League campaign.

But, with the duo of, we’d imagine, Jorginho and Kante set to take centre-stage, which of the others can you see having a future at Chelsea and which will be either sent out on loan or sold?

Please feel free to discuss the above scenario in our comments facility beneath this article.
