Chelsea have endured a tough season, following what is arguably the best season in their history.
It was always going to be that way though, especially when the Blues attempted to refresh their squad and playing style in such a short time.
Mercurial talents such as Eden Hazard, Oscar, Marko Marin, Cesar Azpilicueta and Victor Moses were drafted in with Roman Abramovich's desire—unrealistic, or not—for Roberto Di Matteo to deliver more trophies, but this time with a more attractive style.
In truth, it was unrealistic to expect this group of players to be able to maximise their potential in the space of a couple of months, no matter who the manager was.
But given that Abramovich could not accept that the Blues might need to discard this season in the process of taking one step back to move the club two steps forward, Di Matteo was hastily fired after the Champions League humiliation to Juventus.
The squad's quality is a match for any in Europe, which means Chelsea do not need drastic changes this summer—just a couple of top-quality players to strengthen glaring holes in the squad.
Here are five players who could be arriving at Stamford Bridge this summer.
