With the imminent announcement of Frank Lampard as the new Chelsea manager, the 41-year-old will no doubt turn to the clubs youth ranks as he looks to bring through some of Chelsea's young guns.
Although given cameo roles in the domestic cups and dead rubber European ties, youth players at Chelsea have found the door slammed shut as big signings were demanded to try to compete with the like of Manchester City during recent seasons.
With Lampard's appointment, might this just be the time to revert to within due to the transfer ban currently in place at Stamford Bridge?
Tammy Abraham has said Chelsea’s transfer ban represents a glorious opportunity for the club’s academy prospects and next season will be 'now or never' for him to break into the first-team.

He would learn a lot from Lampard and be given the freedom to foray down the left delivering dangerous balls for the Chelsea front men. He is no doubt worth a shout at full-back.
Another player Lampard knows well from his time at Derby. Tomori's rise has been incredible under the stewardship of the new Chelsea manager and he is ready to 'return home' to the Bridge, where he has been since the age of seven.
The 21-year-old has what it takes to become a regular for Chelsea and should be given the opportunity to fill the void left by Gary Cahill.
Tomori's presence and power is something to note, but the Derby player of the season, who
The brother of former Chelsea and now Watford midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah, the 19-year-old spent last campaign on-loan at Ipswich Town.
