As Guus Hiddink will most likely be returning to London as Chelsea manager, the club must look to make key acquisitions during the summer transfer window.
After a trophy-less season, owner Roman Abramovich is determined to bolster the current squad. With Liverpool and Manchester United already confirming key signings, the Blues must move quickly to land some of their marquee targets.
Chelsea have been linked with Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric and Palermo playmaker Javier Pastore in recent weeks. Although the Blues have an abundance of talent in the attack and defense, the club lacks a traditional No. 10 in the midfield.
Aside from hiring a new manager, signing a central attacking midfielder has become the main focus for Chelsea.
While the aforementioned players would be great additions, Abramovich should be willing to fight Manchester United for Internazionale's midfield maestro.
Dutch international Wesley Sneijder should be the Blues' No. 1 target this summer.
