Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is determined to clearout the veterans from his squad. The Daily Express says Villas-Boas has already started work on lining up deals for the summer but an age-limit of 26 has been set.

Eden Hazard (Lille), Theo Walcott (Arsenal) and Gonzalo Higuain (Real Madrid) are high on the list, while another bid will be made to sign Porto left-back Alvaro Pereira as the Blues seek to offload Ashley Cole, who has interested Barcelona in the past.

LA Galaxy are interested in Lampard, but he wants a move closer to home for family reasons, and Paris would fit the bill.
