Frank Lampard is looking forward to spending the £150m transfer kitty he has been promised once the transfer ban gets lifted.
Chelsea have performed well this season but they are falling short of healthy players.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport revealed that Chelsea’s appeal will be heard on 20 November 2019. The Blues are optimistic about getting their punishment cut in short, having already served the ban last summer.
News of the hearing has divided the Stamford Bridge fanbase into two parts. One half believes it would be good for the club to go through an entire season without any signings while the other want to see new and talented faces.
The transfer ban has been beneficial to Chelsea in certain regards, their biggest one being the emergence of Academy talents like Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham, Fikayo Tomori, Billy Gilmour, Marc Guehi and Reece James.
Adding big names into the squad will immediately thrust some of these youngsters down the pecking order, therefore, hindering their fast development. Lampard ideally will uphold his philosophies and keep giving his younger players more chances.
He is expected to find replacements for the likes of Pedro, Olivier Giroud and Willian. The former two are being frozen out slowly and Willian only has a deal till the end of this season.
