Chelsea are feeling optimistic about getting their transfer ban reduced to just one window.
That would mean for them to be allowed to make signings next January. The Court of Arbitration for Sport revealed that Chelsea’s appeal will be heard on November 20.
Frank Lampard himself seems eager to make additions. When posed the question over the possibility of having the ban lifted, he said, “I will cross that bridge when I come to it. I am very happy with what I’ve got, but it is something we would always look to at Chelsea.
“Can we improve in areas and only do business if we can improve and it feels it is the right thing for the group. Not just personnel-wise, but in the balance and the way we are going.
“I will look at that one, but at the moment I can’t ask for any more. It’s nice that what happens at the appeal is really down the list of my priorities at the minute. The real priority is going game to game and trying to improve all the time.”
Chelsea have been strongly linked with the likes of Timo Leipzig, RB Leipzig speedy forward and Wilfried Zaha, who is itching to get out of Crystal Palace since last summer.
