With the conclusion of a disappointing season without silverware and the end of Carlo Ancelotti's reign at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea will be looking to embark on a summer filled with transfer talk.

Owner Roman Abramovich's desperation to finally get his hands on the UEFA Champions League has seen him splash plenty of cash in the past and this summer may yet prove to be no different. In fact, it could yet prove to be his most expensive summer to date.

With an aging squad and a number of disgruntled players, Chelsea will be looking to change the culture of the squad as well as its personnel. They will look to get younger, quicker and more technical while maintaining the physical advantage they have enjoyed over many teams over the last few seasons.

The bookies favourite for the vacant managerial spot looks to be a familiar face in Guus Hiddink, but be not fooled. This Chelsea, headed up by Fernando Torres, should look very different from the team we have come to know the past few seasons.

So who will Abramovich throw his millions at? Who will Fernando Torres welcome to the bridge? Who will accept the challenge of trying to bring the London outfit their first UEFA Champions League triumph?

In no particular order, here are Chelsea's summer transfer targets.

The transfer fees are rough estimates based on a number of sources. This is strictly a guide and is not a definitive list. Enjoy!
