According to the Metro, Frank Lampard revealed in his post-match interview that he’s considering the idea of strengthening Chelsea’s attack in January now that the Blues’ transfer ban has been lifted.
Lampard has worked wonders with some of Chelsea’s most talented youngsters and the Blues are currently sitting fourth in the Premier League table.
Nevertheless, the Blues legend insisted that Eden Hazard’s departure to Real Madrid this summer has led to the team ‘losing a lot of goals and creation’ up top.
The Metro add that Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho is one of the star attacker’s that is being strongly linked with a move to Stamford Bridge,.
The report also claims that the west London outfit are considering a £100m bid for the ace.
Chelsea certainly have the budget to make a marquee move with the Guardian reporting that Lampard will have £150m at his disposal in January.
Here’s what Lampard had to say on potential attacking reinforcements:
“I think it will be a bit fluid and discussions will be ongoing from now about where we can strengthen,”
“Of course, with Eden leaving we lost a lot of goals and creation in that particular position.
“Today we’ve missed some chances and we can look at strengthening and pushing and getting more competition in those areas.”
It’s not surprising to see us linked with a move for the 19-year-old sensation.
Recent international breaks have shown that the tricky winger has a brilliant relationship with Chelsea stars like Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori.
If Sancho becomes available anytime soon, we should certainly explore the option of signing the ace.
