Chelsea fans told signings will be following Werner and Ziyech to the Bridge this summer
Chelsea will continue to spend big in the upcoming summer transfer window – That’s the opinion of Alan Shearer
Frank Lampard is not messing around with his summer transfer business and is looking to make sure that he gets his deals done early, so he is able to integrate the new players into his system for the start of next season.
He has already signed Hakim Ziyech and there are big reports in the media that a deal for Timo Werner has been agreed by the club, with the German all set to sign up to a massive five-year deal at the club
And Writing in his column for The Sun, Shearer explained why the Stamford Bridge giants are in a good position to make big-name signings over the course of the transfer window.
Shearer wrote: “Signing Timo Werner is a huge statement from Chelsea — but it would be a kick in the teeth not to make the top four now.
“Along with Hakim Ziyech, they have got two big-hitters through the door before the transfer window has opened.
“I am certain there will be more to come, too, with Ben Chilwell also on their radar.
“But these players will all be expecting to play in the Champions League next season, so it’s imperative they get the job done.
“With a three-point cushion in fourth it would be a real anti-climax if they didn’t, considering the talent on the way in.
“If Manchester City are banned from European football next season, then fifth place might do it.
“Whether they do make it or not, Frank Lampard’s squad is looking in great shape.
“And in Werner, they’ve got someone who a lot of other top teams in Europe wanted.
“At 24, he’s the perfect age, his international career is taking off, and he will without a doubt add something special.”
