Striker Piatek can arrive for bargain as Lampard demands forward signed for Chelsea this month
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is pressuring Blues chiefs to sign a new striker before Friday’s transfer deadline, with reports the club are keen on Kryztof Piatek.
Tammy Abraham is our top goalscorer this season, however, the England international is struggling with an ankle injury and that means that we only have Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud as the clubs only options up top.
And according to The Sun, Lampard has demanded we sign a new striker this month, as the former star has urged technical director Petr Cech and director Marina Granovskaia to back him in the transfer window.
The reports claims Lampard feels the west London club must spend to secure a place in the top four this season.
Abd according to reports, if Frank Lampard offloads Olivier Giroud to Inter Milan this month then they may bid for the striker at rivals AC, with reports suggesting Stefano Pioli’s side are reportedly demanding £25million for the 24-year-old Piatek, and will not accept a loan deal.
Edinson Cavani is also a target but the PSG’s demands are putting the Blues off.
Look, we love this young and exciting side that has a big future in the game, but Lampard needs to be backed if the club are serious about closing the game on Manchester City and Liverpool/.
So if the clues does believe that Lampard is the man to lead the club back to success, then they need to give him the funds to complete a transfer deal, as he seriously needs to add a striker to this side in the coming days.
But we would not be surprised if the club didn’t finance a move and we struggled to score goals between now and the end of the season.
