The blues spent half a billion dollars on new players this season. The Blues will finish the season at the bottom of the table despite acquiring top targets such as Mykhaylo Murdryk and Premier League Record signing Enzo Fernandez.
Pochettino will take over in July and a summer window will be opened to prepare the squad for next season. Scholes believes that there is still more work to be done.
Scholes told Premier League Productions: "I think [Pochettino] will have to buy two center-halves and possibly a right-back or left-back. A whole new back-four," Scholes said."I'm not certain about either goalkeeper.
"But I think moving forward, I always look at a team and am excited when they create opportunities. I think adding a center-forward to that will always create chances. If you have a team that can score goals, you've always had a chance."
Chelsea has scored 37 goals in 37 Premier League matches, nine fewer than the 46 they scored during 1995-96. This was their previous lowest total. Only three teams have scored less, and two of those in the bottom three have scored even more than the Blues.
Chelsea will likely need to sell some players in order to make room for new signings. Some first-team players were left out of the Champions League knockout squad due to a bloated squad, while other big-money signings struggled to get any minutes.
Mason Mount is one man who may be moving. Mason Mount, the England international, is out of contract by 2024. The Blues could decide to cash in on the deal despite Lampard's recognition that the club still values the academy graduate.
"I don't think I know what the solution is going to be for Mason as an individual. It's a club issue and Mason's problem," the caretaker manager told Sky Sports Thursday."I don't really know where Mason is personally. He has a year remaining on his contract."
"I know that he is highly regarded at the club and I also know that the club is doing everything they can to keep him, but I don't think I would ever want to stand up and tell a modern-day player what to do. They'll be able to see everything through their own eyes, including what has happened, how they feel on the pitch, and what the future holds for them.
