‘I have ideas’ – Lampard updates on Chelsea’s January transfer plans

F

rank Lampard has refused to rule out any January signings – but has hinted players would have to leave before he enters the transfer market.  

The Chelsea manager spent £220million on a squad rebuild ahead of this season.  

They could all be on their way out before the transfer window shuts at the end of the month, with loan or permanent moves possible.  

Chelsea have been linked with David Alaba from Bayern Munich, who will be a free agent in the summer, and Ecuador teenager Moises Caicedo in recent weeks.  

Discussing his transfer plans, Lampard said: “I am not sure at the moment. I have ideas, we have a big squad. We have to see if that changes if there are opportunities for players that aren’t playing so much.  

“But that’ll be a conversation between the player and myself and then we will see if we can strengthen in the right way.

“But we are not jumping up and down to do so at the moment, my focus this year is purely on work. It’s a long month.”

Rudiger and Kepa have aspirations of making the Euros this summer, while Olivier Giroud’s future is also uncertain, with the striker adamant he needs regular game time if he is to be involved in France’s squad.  

Callum Hudson-Odoi remains on the radar of Bayern after the German giants failed to lure him away from Stamford Bridge last season. He has also struggled to establish himself, following the arrival of Hakim Ziyech, which could see him sent out on loan.
