Poor transfer window means Lampard should tell Chelsea to wrap up massive £70 million Chilwell deal
Frank Lampard should tell Chelsea to sign Ben Chilwell ahead of Manchester United
After months and months of fighting their transfer ban, Frank Lampard managed to get an early Christmas Present this month after it was revealed that the ban had been lifted, and we were able to sign players again in the January window.
Emerson Palmieri made a strong start to the campaign, but has been dealt with several injury problems and Chelsea have had to turn to Marcos Alonso, who you feel is not a particular favourite of Lampard’s.
Cesar Azpilicueta has played in that position, despite being a right-back, while Reece James has also done a job on the left, so we needed to delve into their transfer kitty to try and acquire the services of a new left-back.
And as we said, Chilwell has enhanced his reputation this season with a series of impressive displays for title-chasing Leicester and is one of the best full-backs in the top flight.
However, it is believed that United are leading the chase for the Leicester defender with reports suggesting that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a massive fan of the England International and is keen to add him to the United side at the end of the season.
And after failing to improve the side during the January transfer window, Lampard should make Chilwell as a priority target and should try to get a deal done before United, especially as he has a massive £150 million transfer kitty to play with.
Look, we all know that we will come all guns blazing in the summer window as they need to improve, and although Brendan Rodgers does not want to lose his best players in the winter window, the right offer will get a transfer deal done.
