Chelsea are planning a £200million raid on Italy’s Serie A.

Frank Lampard reportedly drew up a three-man shortlist.

Ajax star Hakim Ziyech will join the Blues at the end of the season and Lampard has identified further targets.

According to reports in Italy, Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic, AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma and Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez are all on the Chelsea boss’ wishlist.

Kepa Arrizabalaga was dropped from the starting lineup for several matches and now his future looks uncertain.

Chelsea ready to spend £47million to sign Donnarumma.

Lampard wants to sign a striker and Martinez is an ideal candidate. However, the Blues could face a difficult challenge from Barcelona and Real Madrid.

The third player is Pjanic, who has fallen down the pecking order under Maurizio Sarri. Chelsea remain confident they can seal a £55m deal for the Croatian.
