Lampard makes Chelsea transfer admission amid Sancho and Coutinho links



Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard says he is ‘excited’ by his current Chelsea squad but wants to bring in a ‘few new additions’ during the summer transfer window.

Due to their transfer ban, the Blues were unable to sign any players last summer and failed to bolster Lampard’s squad in January despite having the restrictions lifted shortly before the window opened.

Chelsea will welcome Ajax Hakim Ziyech to Stamford Bridge this summer after agreeing a £33m deal in February.

However, Lampard has suggested the club’s transfer activity will not stop there despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Speaking to the Chelsea magazine, Lampard said: “I’m certainly excited about the squad we’ve got, with the young players and if we can get a few additions for areas I feel we need.

“We didn’t bring in anyone in January, it didn’t work out to be right for us at the time, and last summer we couldn’t bring anyone in, so those windows are gone and we haven’t changed.

“So I am excited about the squad we’ve got, if we can freshen up in the right areas we all know that.”

For the past months Chelsea have been linked with moves for England ace Jadon Sancho, Philippe Coutinho and Bundesliga star Kai Havertz.

However, last week, former Chelsea star Frank Leboeuf urged Lampard to sign Havertz over Barcelona flop Coutinho.

“I like his maturity on the field, he looks like someone who is 30 and knows exactly what he has to do and when he has to do it,” Leboeuf said.

“The goal he scored was very clever, between the goalkeeper’s legs. He’s the master orchestrator of that team and I talked about him last week and I said that’s a player that I would hire for sure.

“When we were talking Chelsea about Coutinho, when you see that player [Havertz], he should be in the Premier League very soon.

“He should be because he’s a very, very talented player.”
