The latest transfer news and gossip around Chelsea ahead of the January window as the Blues are linked with the likes of Wilfried Zaha, Ben Chilwell and Jadon Sancho
Just 19 days remain of the calendar year, and as a result, the January transfer window is just around the corner. Already the transfer rumour mill is in full flow with clubs from all over the continent linked with a host of stars. For the first time in his tenure at Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard will be able to sign players after the club’s transfer plan was lifted last week.
Blues eye Chalov…Frank Lampard wants attacking reinforcements next month and has identified CSKA Moscow’s Fyodor Chalov. According to sources, Lampard’s transfer budget for the January window is £150m, with him keen to bolster his side’s attacking options.
“I will look at all areas of the team but I think it was quite clear in the summer that you lose Eden Hazard, who was a huge part of scoring or creating our goals last season and the season before that,” Lampard said after Tuesday’s game.
“I think we’ve found ways as a team where we can still be competitive. We’ve shown that in the league and now the Champions League. But if we’re looking at if we can get even better, can we get better in forward areas to help the idea of being more clinical, then I think we’ll always look at that.”
