Everything about Chelsea appears uncertain right now. Will they qualify for the Champions League? Is Frank Lampard going to remain at Stamford Bridge beyond this season? Who will be the next permanent manager?

Last summer saw the Blues bring in the likes of Eden Hazard, Oscar and Victor Moses as they looked to replace an aging squad with youthful talent and ambition. Rumours are abound as to who will be added to these names, but rather than regurgitate Chinese whispers linking the likes of Falcao and Edinson Cavani with Chelsea, Bleacher Report looks at five players who could make the Blues stronger for next year.
