Blues have agreed a £33.4m deal to sign Hakim Ziyech from Ajax in the summer.
Blues did not roar during the previous transfer window and were quiet in the month of January. They have also sent out a huge statement ahead of the summer.
The Blues have agreed to sign Hakim Ziyech’s from Ajax on a deal worth £33.4m and will officially go through on July 1, 2020. The Morocco international will provide much-needed improvements in attacking areas for next season.
And if Chelsea could back Frank Lampard in the summer, there could be a little squad overhaul at Stamford Bridge. With the likes of Timo Werner, Jadon Sancho, Ben Chilwell, and Moussa Sissoko are few names linked with the Blues.
The arrival of a new goalkeeper to Stamford Bridge is likely to happen. The Spanish professional was not taken into consideration after he was replaced by Willy Caballero in the last two games. It is therefore yet to be seen where Kepa Arrizabalaga lies in Lampard’s long-term future plans.
There is also recent talk of strengthening the backbone of the team even further.
Lampard is yet to settle on a first-choice centre-back pairing. Even though it appears he’s looking to find a partner for Antonio Rudiger. N’Golo Kante’s latest injury problem signifies a decision making will occur at the end of the season.
- Kepa for Oblak and some more swap deals Chelsea could pursue
- Brentford manager on Benrahma transfer amid Chelsea & Arsenal interest
- Chelsea seeking €20M as midfielder ready to return to Serie A club
The two names linked with a summer move to west London are of Abdoulaye Doucoure and Napoli star defender Kalidou Koulibaly. The following deals for the pair would take a huge part out of Lampard’s transfer budget.
Chelsea can save millions from Wonderkid.
Moreover, luckily blues already have a player who can play in defense and midfield already in their hands. Ethan Ampadu, a loanee from Chelsea will return to Cobham when his loan spell at RB Leipzig will expire at the end of the season. The wonder kid can save Frank Lampard’s big money in the summer.
The Wales international couldn’t manage to have a pleasant season in Germany. Though, he made the most of a starting opportunity given in the 1-0 Champions League round of 16 first-leg wins over Tottenham Hotspur during the midweek.
He played in the middle of a back three and Ampadu’s stats were impressive. He also earned a place in the Champions League Team of the Week with a 7.3 rating from Whoscored.
