Chelsea Coach Reveals Players he Will Sign in January

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed that the club will be keen on strengthening his attack by signing a striker and a creative player during the January transfer window.

The Blues were handed massive boost when CAS reduced their transfer embargo and are now free to make signings in January after missing out in the summer.

They have registered mixed results so far this campaign but many will argue that they have performed well considering Lampard had to turn to youngsters like Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount due to the ban.

Asked if he will be making signings in January, the Chelsea legend revealed that they are keen on strengthening two areas. He said that he is targeting a striker as they have been throwing away many chances and is keen on getting a player who will deputize Abraham. The former Derby County boss also wants to sign a creative player who will replace Eden Hazard.

“I think it will be very fluid and there will be discussions from now about how we will strengthen. We lost a lot of goals and creation with Eden last year, in his particular position. We missed some chances and we can probably push and look at strengthening in those areas,” he said.
