With the transfer ban disappearing for Chelsea last week, the Blues are free to sign new players in the upcoming transfer window in January 2020. Currently, according to sources, Chelsea is looking to sign three players this January.
Football pundit Paul Merson has a few thoughts on Chelsea’s transfers. He believes that whoever Lampard decides to welcome to the team – the success rate of Chelsea winning the Champions League will depends on the kind of new signings which will come in.
“If Chelsea do the right deals in January they can book their ticket to a top four finish now their transfer ban has been lifted,” Merson wrote in his Daily Star column.
“They are right in the hunt already but they have teams breathing down their neck now and the youngsters could do with some help.
“They need a centre forward to take the load off Tammy Abraham for a start. He’s done brilliantly but you can’t rely on him alone for the rest of the season.
“I think Olivier Giroud will go. He’s hardly played and isn’t getting any younger. So they will need to replace him.
“They might need a more experienced centre half if Antonio Rudiger isn’t going to be 100 per cent for the rest of the season – and they need a left back as well.
