Lampard needs a forward

London Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is looking for a quality striker and even tried to sign Werner.

This season Chelsea faced problems not only on the wings of defense, but also efficiency. The Blues create many moments at the beginning of the game, but it is not enough for victories. Because of that, the team is risking to drop out of the Champions League zone.

For now, Chelsea only have Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi. While the former is used on the edge of Lampard’s formations, the latter can both conclude and develop an attack. It is not surprising that Bayern Munich were seriously interested in him last season, but the player’s injury stopped the transfer from happening.

Because of the fact that Abraham stopped scoring as often as it was in the end of the fall, the club is looking for a new striker. Whereas Chelsea also intend to extend contract with Tammy, who is currently refusing because of insufficient salary sum. The 22-year old forward’s agent is asking for the same salary as Hudson-Odoi – 180 thousand pounds a week.

Considering these problems, Chelsea has already intended to sign Zaha from Crystal Palace and lately it has become known about the Londoners’ interest in Timo Werner, who is having a very efficient season at Leipzig. The German scored 23 goals in 24 games for the Bulls in all tournaments and his compensation sum according to a certain information is 25,6 million pounds and to another is twice as much.

In any case, the fact is that Chelsea are going to fully take advantage of the lifted transfer ban and will spare no expense on strengthening. Moussa Dembele, Jadon Sancho, Leon Bailey and Samuel Chukwueze are also in the Blues’ short-list. As a last resort, Lampard can take advantage of the method of his mentor Jose Mourinho and in any unfamiliar situation bring back Didier Drogba to Chelsea.
