Chelsea plot two more transfers after Kai Havertz signing as Lampard targets new keeper and defensive midfielder
4th September 2020

FRANK LAMPARD is set to keep his summer spending going as he targets a new keeper and defensive midfielder.

The Blues boss has already welcomed Hakim Ziyech, 27, Timo Werner, 24, Ben Chilwell, 23, Thiago Silva, 35, and Malang Sarr, 21, into his squad.

But he is due to take his transfer business past £200million as he closes in on a club record deal for 21-year-old Kai Havertz.

The playmaker left Germany's Nations League squad to allow him to finish off the final stages of his £90m move.

But according to The Telegraph, Lampard is still in the market for a stopper and defence-minded midfielder.

SunSport revealed under-fire Kepa Arrizabalaga will fight for his place at Stamford Bridge, but it will not stop the club from bringing in competition.

It is believed they have already had a £15million bid turned down for Rennes' Edouard Mendy.

And Lampard is also a fan of Ajax keeper Andre Onana, having been in contact with his representatives throughout last season.

The Chelsea head coach has several options in midfield, helped by the fact N’Golo Kante appears ready to remain a Blue.

But Declan Rice, 21, remains a top target for the club.

Lampard sees the England international as a potential solution for his defensive problems.

But having played in front of the backline most of his senior career, opposed to centre-back, Rice could be contender for Chelsea's packed midfield.

The Blues are yet to bid for the West Ham favourite, but it is understood the Hammers rate him as high as £80m.
