Two sources claim Chelsea are considering a January move for Nathan Ake

Frank Lampard is considering whether to make a January move for former Chelsea defender Nathan Ake, according to The Telegraph.

In an exclusive by the reliable Matt Law, he states that Lampard wants to assess the fitness and form of Antonio Rudiger before making a decision on Ake.

Law acknowledges that Ake potentially picked up an injury yesterday, but say both clubs will hope that it is not serious.

Another reporter Nicolo Schira also claims that Chelsea are looking at a move for Ake, but actually cites it being for the left back position.

After yesterday’s awful defensive display, or non-existent one, Lampard might feel that he needs to invest in defenders in January regardless of how Rudiger is on his return.

They were heartless and gutless at the back yesterday and are in serious need of some more physical fight, confidence, and leadership there.

Law does state in his report that the defence ‘is an area of concern for Lampard.’

Understatement of the year!
