Summer Transfer Window and the 'Homegrown' quota

Despite a crucial part of the season left to play, summer transfer speculation has long begun with Lampard not yet offered a new contract and links to Falcao etc etc. However, our squad of 25 has only the minimum amount to satisfy the homegrown rule of 8 homegrown players in the squad at the start of the season. With Sturridge gone, Lampard appearing to be on the way, Ashley Cole and John Terry with maybe one or two season left, maintaining a minimum of 8 homegrown players must be a key consideration in this summer's transfer window? Despite the amount of lazy journalism on transfer speculation there is nothing on how the homegrown rule will influence transfer strategy. I can't claim I am expert on this quota. So I would like to hear some thoughts on what our summer transfer targets are likely to be in the context of the need to keep 8 homegrown players. There is also the added complication of a number of players who have reached age 21 this season who will now need to be included in the squad of 25 while this season they were exempt due to age.
